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!

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!
