About Us

I am a visual artist who loves painting in watercolors and acrylics. I also teach workshops in Watercolor Journaling. Visit my Studio or Website for more. The name of my business refers to a desire to live a simple life dedicated to creating art and gathering experiences, not material things.

How We Got Started

After 20 years as a graphic designer I wanted to focus my attention on travel and painting. My late husband, Bob Connelly was a retired firefighter and gifted photographer. Together, we lived in Italy and traveled around the world. The studio we shared together in downtown Milford will close on August 17, 2017 so that I can focus on my watercolor journaling / sketchbook practice, teaching and traveling.

I would have to say both too! Although I won't generally buy art supplies if the shipping costs are too high for what I am buying. (more)
