by Edie Wadsworth on September 22, 2009

It is with great pleasure I give you: Studio 8 She had a sinewy mind, capable of violent enthusiasms and possessed a driving energy to make and do. Sometimes, it seemed as if the wrong soul had been placed inside that slight body, for she pushed herself to her limits and beyond, and was often […]

Studio 8

by Edie Wadsworth on September 5, 2009
