Super! You can only enjoy it!
I have done many of her models. All good models and well taught. I really like this star.

Easy art projects to enrich your life


In my studio practice, I explore creativity through writing, watercolor painting, and origami, the art of paper folding. These artistic activities are vehicles for cultivating the creative spirit while fostering a sense of inner calm and play in our daily lives.

On my website, you will find my watercolor art and illustration work and my children's books. At, you will find origami video instructions and lots of information and resources about the art of paper folding.

Artistic creativity and the ability to play are skills that help us live fuller lives and become better human beings. When we improve ourselves, we are better equipped to help improve the world around us.

I love teaching and helping people release their creative potential and appreciate the process as much as the result. 

I also enjoy photography, language, biking, and dancing. Spanish is my native language and English is my adoptive one.

The lovely state of Vermont, USA is the place I call home and where live with my husband John Sutton and Coco, our sweet female cat.
