Good news - may artwork was reviewed in Art Move Magazine!
J. Fatima Martins, Editor-At-Large & Social Media at Art Move, did an insightful review of my art journey and abstracts.
|One of the featured abstracts - "Thinking About It" 8x8 Acrylic Nancy Teague|

Art Move Issue Ten is loaded with other featured articles, including a powerful testimony (page 18) by the originator and Owner of this publication. Sara Kovanda, a multi-talented artist-musician-writer, shares her gripping story that should bring hope to many who have been deeply wounded from abuse. Her journey is one of darkness but culminates in rebounding and flourishing. A remarkable woman!
Additional articles include topics on musicians, poets, Surrealist Nolan Tredway, comedy, human interests, and food. The food topic was of special interest to me because it is about a chocolate!
Rebecca Ankenbrand, chocolatier, is owner of Sweet Minou Chocolate in Lincoln, NE. She is into nothing but the best decadent chocolate. To read more about her unique business check out page 10 in Art Move Issue Ten . You can also find Sweet Minou Chocolate on Facebook.
