A note from Lexi...
As a little girl, I was mesmerized by art and was blessed to have a mother who encouraged me to follow my creativity. I remember my first pottery class, the smells, the new tools and the teacher. I remember my friend's chocolate decorating birthday party and getting immersed in the details of applying sprinkles to the gooey chocolate surface. I remember building my first architecture model in our basement until midnight. It was these early experiences that laid the foundation for me to become the person that I am today. I am grateful that I had these opportunities and it is my joy to offer them to children and adults in a safe space where they can let their imaginations run wild. Evelyn's Corner is named after my Grandma Evelyn who spread community and kindness throughout her life. I look forward to meeting you and creating together!
