In the time of covid....    August 20 2020
I hope this newsletter finds you and your families doing well. It is hard to fathom that we are six months into this pandemic. For me, the solace I find in my studio has been my way of coping with all that is going on in our unsettled world. I feel like it gives purpose to my days, especially the body of work related to the pandemic. During this pause, I have also enjoyed engaging with art communities through the Zoom platform. I have Zoomed with polymer clay guilds and mosaic organizations. I have found it very rewarding connecting with like-minded people through these meet-ups especially since all of my in-person teaching was cancelled for the year. I have no idea when I will resume in-person teaching, still waiting to see how the fall shakes out. My continued thanks to all of you who have supported me with your purchases in my Etsy store. It has warmed my heart.....stay well.

as time goes by.....    July 12 2020
Here we are in July and the pandemic has been surging. We have taken it very seriously and continue to self-isolate....which means more time in the studio.I feel very fortunate that I am able to stay home and do what I love most, create art. My Etsy store business has been very busy and I find that my only outing is to UPS to ship off pieces.I am so very grateful for the continued support of my art. I am continuing my series of pandemic related artwork and have done a few pieces that speak to the social justice movement including a piece I just added to my Art gallery page called, The Tarot Card-Justice inspired by a vintage tarot deck. In keeping up with the times, I have a couple of Zoom meet-ups, tomorrow will be a demo and talk for the wonderful organization called Piece by Piece in Los Angeles. A little later this month I will be doing a demo for the Connecticut Polymer Clay Guild. I also have a new online class that is available through Create Arts Online. I hope that everyone continues to stay safe, wearing those masks! I know that it is a very difficult time for so many and my heart goes out to those people struggling.....I hope that we get a handle on the coronavirus very soon....

As the months go by....    June 07 2020
It truly feels like a time warp. I can't believe we are already into June and I think this is the case because I am very happy staying home in my studio creating art because as they say, "time is meaningless in the face of creativity". As I mentioned previously, I began a Pandemic series of artwork because it just felt right to speak to what we were collectively going through. With the recent civil unrest, I am feeling the same way, though not exactly sure how this will be translated into art at this point. I still believe these challenging times will be a period of great reflection and change for the better. Pop Gallery in Santa Fe recently opened again so I will be sending some more work their way. I also have recently updated my Etsy store with new pieces. Please Stay Well.....
