From The Road

This month while I visited New York, I had the wonderful opportunity of meeting with the entrepreneur, teacher, and photographer Susan Easton, creator of From The Road.  She started the company based on her passion for the arts and world travel, and more importantly, how people created them.   
Here I display pictures of some of the incredible art that she has discovered.
