It has been nearly five years now since we moved back from France and I always seem to get nostalgic for Paris around the holidays. The city was always so elegant with its tasteful decorations lining the streets, the holiday markets, and all of the store windows in Paris converted into little holiday "escapes." Such a beautiful city already, but during the holidays it really is magical.
So, I wanted to write a few words about France and share a Parisian memory or two as the first blog post on my new site -- especially given the fragile state of the city after the horrific attacks that just took place. France and my time there will always be a part of who I am and relevant to my work as an artist. The country, the language, the food, and the friends I made there have forever impacted my life. My heart goes out to Paris this holiday season and I wish only for peace and healing as we head into the New Year..
Joyeux Noel & Bonne Année!
