O Canada!    August 15 2017
Just in between trips....from Alaska to Phoenix and now off to Canada, it has been a busy few weeks! I have managed to spend some time in my studio and just updated my Etsy shop. Looking forward to teaching at Elitia Hart's studio in Calgary. Elitia does amazing embossed metal work. (www.pewterart.ca)Hope the summer is treating you well....as it speeds by!

Happy 4th    July 02 2017
Just returned from a month long trip to Europe. It was wonderful seeing so many inspiring pieces of art that we hadn't seen before including two versions of Fra Angelico's Annunciation, one of my favorite religious paintings. We also took in amazing architecture including Palladio's Rotunda in Vicenza. Now that I am back in my studio, I am preparing for a busy summer that includes teaching on an Alaska bound cruise ship! Should be a very unique experience and one that I am looking forward to. That is closely followed by Art Unraveled in Phoenix, yes, blazing hot in August but still a great event! Then I am off to Canada to teach in Elitia Hart's studio in Calgary. Lots to keep me busy and traveling this summer, that's for sure. Wishing you all a very happy Independence Day!

Hope Springs Eternal    April 24 2017
Spring is always a super busy time around my studio. It seems as if most teaching engagements happen in the spring and fall. I recently returned from teaching at Art is you in Santa Rosa. It was great to combine a little wine/beer tasting along with teaching and vending. Thanks to all who joined me up north. Saturday night I attended the auction in Fullerton to benefit arts education in their public schools. My large polymer heart sold for 2000.00, all of which went to the program. That really warmed my heart and I am honored to have helped their worthy cause. Future news: Still room on the cruise to Alaska to clay and cruise. Check my workshop listings for more info. Also Art Unraveled just recently opened for registration. I will be team teaching our Sacred Tomes class with Katherine England! I also will be teaching a couple other fun classes called Bird in the Hand and Artful Objects II. Hope to see you somewhere on the trail!
