Episode 214: Today I talk to artist, Luna Smith…all the way in Scotland. She has her own gallery, but she is also in the Saatchi gallery. I met her after I used one of her pieces as one of my Coup de Coeurs. She reached out to me and I knew I had to have her on the show. She tells me the inspiration behind her vivid, colorful paintings. Also, she can SEE music…literally.

Episode 212: Today I talk to Charlotte polymer clay artist, Laura Brosi. I catch up with her as she is getting ready to go see Jesus Christ Superstar. We talk cats, we talk clay, we talk process, we talk about why she specialized her practice to polymer. I wanted to get a shot of her dress, because it’s FAB-U-LOUS.

Before 1940, the term jeep was US army slang for new recruits or vehicles, but the World War II jeep that went into production in 1941 specifically referred to the light military vehicle – making them the oldest four-wheel drive mass production vehicles now known as SUVs.
