CONNECT WITH LUCIA:
Lucia Coale lives in Salem, Massachusetts with her husband, son, and two rescue dogs George and Gracie. Although having been sent to numerous art classes as a child, she has never considered herself artistically inclined, rather artistically challenged. Social media has enabled her to express her creativity without having to rely on stick figures, her only take-away from all those art classes. Feel free to connect with Lucia via Twitter and Instagram.
