Today's interview is with the delightful spirit who is Tracie Lyn Huskamp. I met Tracie when I attended ArtFest for the first time in 2006, and we instantly knew we were kindred spirits. She is a gifted teacher, and she simply has a heart of gold. Her first book, Nature Inspired, is now out, and it looks beautiful and full of incredible techniques that invite readers to notice the world around them and create something that honors the world in which they live. (You can even order an autographed copy that includes a print; visit Tracie's blog for more information.)
Enjoy this peek into Tracie's world...
