Well, that IS the life at least for an hour or so each month at the Dunedin Fine Art Center’s Coffee and Conversation series. Enjoy coffee (Presented by the Sterling Society of DFAC) and insights as each month’s invited guest holds forth on their own area of expertise. Admission to these relaxed talks is $5 and is FREE to current DFAC members.

Sharing her process from inspiration through design drawings to completely realized one-of-a-kind masterpieces, Ellen is bound to get those creative juices flowing!
