Authentic Travel and Tours is alive and well, though it has been a time of transition. In 2016 I led a large tour to France, just after selling my gallery. I returned in 2017 to live in France for an extended time, then visited Ireland. Upon my return, I was hired as the Director of Woods hall Gallery and Studios on Madeline Island, where I spent the rest of the year. I was so busy with this position that I did not plan any tours, and I will continue on as Education coordinator but will not have quite as full a schedule.
So, this winter is a time to reflect on the amazing travel and experiences I have had, create artwork and delve deeply into fresh approaches to it. I’m particularly interested in botanical printing and have collected plants fro many places to print fabric and paper. I am also taking a break from leading trips so that I can tend to my home and property, and focus on where and what I would like the tours to be.
I am now able to focus on what new and exciting things might be possible for future tours, and have planned some “scouting” trips to look at possible tours and meet people to include. Ireland, Scotland and France are all of interest….so like this page, or my Facebook page, to get up to the minute posts when things develop.
Thank you for your interest!
