My "featured" artist/friend today is Laetitia Borden. She is a talented pastel artist who happened to come into Stone Soup Artisans when I was working and we immediately clicked. She is wise and funny, generous and kind, and has led an interesting life. Like many artists, she is proficient in a variety of different media and I have enjoyed introducing her to origami and other paper-crafts. I feel so fortunate that she came into the shop on one of my work days; but I am coming to believe that these things do not happen by accident. Somehow, we were meant to meet.
