Hi from Your New Blog Manager!

Howdy Everyone!

I just thought I'd take a moment to introduce myself. I'm Sarah Treanor, and I will be taking over managing the blog for SAL since Alicia has now departed from Seguin on new adventures. We are wishing her well!

A bit about me, I'm a fine art photographer and writer originally from Corpus Christi. Formerly a graphic designer in Dallas, I left the corporate world a few years ago to pave my way as an artist - my biggest passion. I have been blogging for about 4 years now, so I'm looking forward to bringing my knowledge and writing expertise here to the SAL blog.

You will notice that I am doing a bit of a face lift to the look of the blog, but all information will be organized the same as it has been. Should you have any questions for me, do feel free to write to me at sarahtreanor@gmail.com

Looking forward to bringing you all the latest and greatest about our wonderful Seguin Art League!

Cheers,
Sarah
