As artists, we’ve used art to help us through something hard. In today’s episode, my guest is the very epitome of that. Ann Upton is an extraordinary resin artist that does acrylic pouring, traditional painting, and ceramic art. Her story is incredibly inspiring, and you will not want to miss this episode. 

Ann is a mom of five kids, a classically trained pastry chef, a homeschool mom, and an all-around fantastic person!
