The Creative Artisan


Kathleen Hede/Bradford painted in oils for more than thirty years.  One day she was asked to make a mixed media assemblage of different colored objects, and she was hooked.  No more oils.  Kathleen has a studio and gallery in Bonita Springs, Florida.  Her website is here.



On the first day of each month, City Daily Photo bloggers post photos on a theme.  For May, the theme is "the creative artisan."  To see other bloggers' interpretations of this theme, click here.

Wow! Talk about appealing to one's senses. There's an inner wild woman there.

I have a completely different idea of artisans: they are not artists and usually make something real and usable with measurable skills...

Not only talented but a lovely face too. And I love those specs, maybe I should be brave and get some statement ones.
