Several of you have contacted Luana directly asking for reviews of your artwork. As much as Luana would love to work with you one-on-one and give you individual help via email, it’s simply not possible due to all that she had on her plate. Thank you for respecting her busy schedule. We encourage you to stay connected with the ArtLicensingShow.com (ALSC) community for opportunities to participate in future group critiques. 
eQuilter is owned and run by Luana and Paul Rubin.
