Love the wabi-sabi concept! Review by Linda

Life isn't perfect so why should we expect creating art to be any different? Serena Barton's Wabi-Sabi Art Workshop soothes my soul with its Haiku poetry and beautiful artwork. Her process is well explained so that even a novice can create a beautiful work with the demonstrations in her book. I have had the pleasure of taking a workshop with her as well as participating in a class with her as a fellow student. This is one book to own if you are even remotely interested in mixed media art. Well done, Serena!
