Finding Beauty in the Challenges of Life!

Following the success of our recent Reflect Arts Group meet-up in Louisville, KY, I figured that I would try a second meet-up, closer to home in Atlanta.

Our recent Louisville meet-up introduced me to some really inspirational artists from the Atlanta area, so I knew that I wanted to experience more of the inspiration of Atlanta.

My hometown of Athens, GA has always been known for its art and music scene, so it’s no surprise that I find so much inspiration in other local artists.

We even found great artistic inspiration in the animals at the zoo and the amazing historic architecture.
