2018!!    January 03 2018
Wishing everyone a very happy, healthy and creative new year. The new year brings a very full year of travel and teaching. All of my workshops are listed on the Workshop page of my website. If something new pops up, I will add that to the list. I'm starting the year off with a trip to Southeast Asia which I am really looking forward to as I have never been to this part of the world and Angkor Wat has been on the bucket list for quite some time! Sure to be inspirational. When I return, I will be heading to my first teaching engagement at Art and Soul in Portland. While one of my three classes is sold out, there is availability in my other two classes. That event is quickly followed by a two day class in Prescott Arizona at Kat Kirby's fabulous studio....and so goes the year! Lots of art, travel and family gatherings...I feel very fortunate! Here's to your new year, hoping it is filled with everything that makes your heart sing!

Talmadge art show....    November 16 2017
Just wanted to let you know that the annual Talmadge art show will be happening this Sunday, November 19 at Liberty Station. More info can be found at www.talmadgeartshow.com. It is a great show to find unique, OOAK gifts for the holiday season and your chance to help support the many artists who make their living through the arts. I have been doing this show since it was actually in Sharon's backyard in Talmadge over 20 years ago! On another note, we just returned from our trip to San Miguel during Day of the Dead. The workshop was fabulous and the entire trip was just plain magical. I came home with a treasure trove of fabulous finds to alter and actually had my first day in the studio in weeks! It is always so inspiring being in Mexico and I always come home ready to get to work creating new pieces.

Fall is upon us!    September 26 2017
As we head into one of my favorite seasons, it seems summer was just here. But the cool evening temps and the crisp days foreshadow the coming months of Fall. It has certainly been a rough couple of months with the hurricanes and earthquakes. My heart aches for those who have lost everything. I am taking part in a fundraiser for CERF-Craft Emergency Relief Fund,that will be raising money,that will be matched by Etsy, for artists who have lost their studios and livelihoods. I will post information on Facebook about this fundraiser when it becomes available. October is always a busy time for me. I will be hosting the third boutique workshop at my home at the beginning of the month and then I am off to Mexico for our annual Day of the Dead retreat. For more information, please email me or check out the Workshops page on my website.
