artist feature - vicki dvorak of 'simply hue'

good morning blogging friends

i am so excited to share my sweet friend, vicki, with all of you.
many of you i'm sure are already fans of vicki's blog

oh my goodness there is so much going on over there.

where do i begin?

  • music
first of all, she has wonderful, inspiring music playing.
i have found some of my favorite artists over there.

  • artist spotlights
she seriously features the most incredible artists of all kinds.
everytime i visit i discover someone new and amazing.

  • art talk
she invites artists to share their thoughts with her readers.
i was honored to be her first 'art talk' feature.
such a gift.  thank you again for that vicki

  • art walk
vicki has collaborated with the lovely amanda from mockingbird
they have some exciting plans to support the efforts of inner city schools/non-profit organizations that reach out to kids' in crisis through ART.
a new and fabulous site and shop are in the works.
all the art work in the shop will be created by children.
if anyone has any time or talent they would like to donate they would be thrilled to have you join.
proceeds from the shop will go to a featured group or organization each month.

  • her photography 

vicki is an incredible photographer.
her eye for beauty and detail is simply beyond!
she creates the most dreamy, story telling images,
that leave me wanting to pack a bag, jump on a plane and land on her doorstep.

so not only does she share amazing artist features
and take incredible photos....
she has about 57 other awesome things going on
'creative spaces'
 'creative challenge'
 'i create'
fabulous give aways
wonderful link love.

as i was preparing this article i felt tired....
just thinking about all that vicki has developed.
 very inspiring!
and i love INSPIRING.

oh did i mention she is an incredibly sweet soul?
so grab a cup of coffee or a nice cold drink and pop over for a visit.

here's some lovely simply hue/vicki linkage for you.

thank you vicki...
here's to an inspired week.

I ♥ Vicki's work! She is one talented lady ... and I'm still trying to figure out how she does it all! :)

Thanks for the point in Vicki's direction, I did not know of her blog, but her photos that you posted are amazing . . . heading over to her place to have a look see.
And also? As I was reading your description of Vicki's blog and her creativity? I thought it sounded a lot like you. You are also an amazingly creative & sweet soul. And I think that you create the most dreamy images, and you feature other artists on your blog, and you create & share the most divine textures and share so much information and encouragement. And I wonder how you accomplish all that you do.
Thanks for all that you do . . .
