Busy studio time    July 17 2018
The middle of summer has actually provided some much needed time in the studio. I was able to create four new pieces for the upcoming show at the Hive gallery in LA that I dropped off this past weekend. I also created two pieces for a Tarot show here in San Diego. Didn't get into that show....but you win some and you lose some! On top of that I have been trying to get caught up on a few things to take to the vendor show at Art Unraveled in Phoenix the first week of August....so the studio has been a hive of activity! I still have room in the collaborative class at Art Unraveled called Heavy Metal Journaling that I am team teaching with Katherine England. The journals will be gorgeous so come join us in the desert in August! lol, I know that sounds hot, but we spend a glorious week of creating INDOORS where temps are perfect!

May/June update    May 23 2018
As summer approaches, my calendar continues to fill. I am heading off to the East Coast to teach in Maryland and Virginia. Fortunately I have had some time in my studio of late to catch up on some projects but also to create a new body of work for an upcoming show at The Hive Gallery in Los Angeles later this summer. The title of the show, Sexy Beasts, led to a variety of mythic female creatures inspired by alchemy and Medieval illustrations. I always enjoy the challenge of having a "prompt" to inspire new ideas and ways to see. I have also had a friend create some ceramic clay substrates of hands and hearts and have enjoyed experimenting with covering ceramic clay with polymer clay. Polymer clay's versatility never ceases to amaze me. My next upcoming workshop after teaching on the East Coast will be Art Unraveled. Please check out my Workshop page for further information on my upcoming classes.

Marching on....    March 12 2018
Prescott was so much fun....many thanks to Kat Kirby who hosted my workshop there and many thanks to all of the wonderful people who joined me for Outside the Box. I am now looking forward to my annual March boutique, home workshop at the end of the month. It is called Vintage Shoe Shrines and we will be covering old shoe forms from Mexico with clay and handmade milagros. This workshop is sold out but I will be soon enrolling for my October three day workshop at my home. In other exciting news, two of my pieces were selected for inclusion at a group show at La Luz de Jesus gallery in Los Angeles. The show runs until April 1st so if you are in the area, make sure to drop by! It was VERY tough getting into this show as they had thousands of submissions. I have been working on some new edgier pieces influenced by alchemy and I am enjoying this new direction in my work. I have so many ideas for new pieces!
