StyleWeek Day 3 was a success featuring four beautifully
crafted collections. Matching the atmosphere, guests were
welcome to show off their own unique fashion, and most
chose to make a stunning, formal appearance. Although

This past summer, I rediscovered printmaking in my repertoire of art techniques. For years, I’ve been working in the language of mixed media. It challenged and entranced me with all its layers of information, combining and balancing a multitude of materials, and of course, the mystery and intrigue the layers communicate. It was like getting to know a person, peeling off the layers until the core was revealed and you could finally see what is really there.

We have mega-churches all around us, as well as small, more tight-knit churches that are communities in and of themselves. But no matter whether a church has 100 members or 10,000, marketing is one key to growth and
