contact name: Bridget Blatzheim
I am an artist and an educator.
Art brings me happiness. Through manipulation and invention, art bestows a voice to ordinary and otherwise silent objects. Creation is beautiful in its simplicity and is destined to be shared. In the course of sharing comes community and interaction, resulting in the possibility of spreading happiness and inspiration to others.
