Tricia Ratliff's artwork listed on World News website

Weird ... you never know what you'll find when you google yourself. I just stumbled across this news website and found a section titled "Tricia Ratliff in the Studio" containing video, images and other content.


I also discovered that a student artist T1m Dose is copying my teaching blog entries directly into one of his blogs for useful content. Kind of funny. =)  Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
