A new year.....    February 14 2017
Can't believe we are now well into 2017....so much happening in the world, it makes one's head spin. During times of turmoil, one is reminded of the healing power of art. I feel so fortunate to have a creative respite, my studio is my sanctuary. I began the year teaching a workshop at Katherine England's studio. The workshop called, Gothic Tomes was a huge success and sold out quickly. While at Katherine's studio, I agreed to do a large plaster heart as part of a fundraiser for the Fullerton school district. This heart, that measures 20 inches tall will be up for auction in April. It was a fun and challenging project that allowed me to stretch (literally) the art of polymer clay! As we head into spring, my schedule becomes pretty busy with lots of travel. I will be doing my second home/boutique workshop (sold out) at the end of March. I recently added a three-day home workshop for early October. Please contact me if you would like more info about that. I should have made a New Year's resolution about being more consistent about updating my website every month! I will try to do better!


Giving thanks....    November 23 2016
With Thanksgiving right around the corner it reminds me of how thankful I am to be surrounded by the family and friends that I hold dear. I feel so fortunate to be able to do a "job' that I love that provides me with the opportunity to create art, travel and teach. Having just returned from our art retreat in San Miguel de Allende, I am filled with inspiration and plenty of new ideas to last a lifetime! I am also thankful to all thirty of our students who joined us in Mexico, for many it was their first time there and we value the trust placed in us....Wishing everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving surrounded by those you love....


Off to Mex!    October 15 2016
Fall is here and with it, our annual trip to San Miguel de Allende for Day of the Dead and our Tesoro Del Corazon annual art retreat! This is always such a special time of year and it is a much anticipated event for our guests that join us. Once again we sold out in the first month....so I guess we must be doing something right! Last weekend I held my first boutique/home workshop. It was a lot of fun and I had such a great group of students. Thank You! Looking forward to the next one in March! I also wanted to remind everyone that my first segment on Make It Artsy aired last week on PBS. We don't get it in San Diego but you can watch the episodes online if you go to www.makeitartsy.com They really did a nice job of editing the show...lots of great tips and techniques are shared with loads of inspiration!
