Tonight on OPB's Oregon Art Beat~ Katie Estvold of Sparrow's Cottage ~

Books Bound Angel by Katie Estvold
I'm very proud to be sharing this wonderful bit of news with all of you this afternoon.
My daughter, Katie Estvold, painter & paper artist
and lover of
~all Things 18th Century~
will be presented this evening on Oregon Public Broadcasting
"Oregon Art Beat" at 8 pm.
Katie will be talking about her art and her love of the 18th c.
from her home, Sparrow's Cottage, deep in the woods of Oregon.
If you live in Oregon, you can watch the show this evening on OPB at 8pm.
If you are not in Oregon, you can view the show on the internet~
it will be archived, so you can watch it at your leisure at any time on their website:
I hope that you will be able to see this segment.
I'm very proud of my Katie,
who as a little girl,
sat by me and her brother, playing with her paint box, paper & scissors
while I sewed and wrote nearly everyday.
I'm very proud that Katie has this wonderful opportunity
for her art to be acknowledged
and to be able to share her love of old paper
and her art with all of us.
to see more of Katie's work~

Oh my, how I enjoyed seeing this. Congratulations to Katie! I loved watching her work, and seeing more of her beautiful creations is always a treat. I loved the large canvases. This is such a well done episode, and I found it to be very inspiring. It brought tears to my eyes to see Katie seeming so confident and fulfulled with what she is doing.
