One of Francesca's pieces: "I work with wax, fabric and thread. This piece has chiffon."

One of Francesca’s pieces: “I work with wax, fabric and thread. This piece has chiffon underneath the wax.” (Francesca is never too far away from her fashion roots!)

I caught up with Francesca Azzara on Friday night, at an art exhibit, where her paintings were being showcased. Several weeks ago, TFIO featured Francesca’s Chapter Two Collaboration with Fashion Designer, Marchesa, a story of second chances and dreams come true. I connected with Francesca’s spirit immediately! So vital, she was embracing this second act of her life. And Friday, I saw it first-hand. We spoke for a few minutes, and Francesca reiterated her empowering message: “Always take chances, because you never know what is around the corner.” Don’t you love that?

Note: Francesca will be running a two-day workshop, late October – early November (Berkeley Heights NJ). For information and details go to Francesca’s website.
