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!

Talmadge art show....    November 16 2017
Just wanted to let you know that the annual Talmadge art show will be happening this Sunday, November 19 at Liberty Station. More info can be found at It is a great show to find unique, OOAK gifts for the holiday season and your chance to help support the many artists who make their living through the arts. I have been doing this show since it was actually in Sharon's backyard in Talmadge over 20 years ago! On another note, we just returned from our trip to San Miguel during Day of the Dead. The workshop was fabulous and the entire trip was just plain magical. I came home with a treasure trove of fabulous finds to alter and actually had my first day in the studio in weeks! It is always so inspiring being in Mexico and I always come home ready to get to work creating new pieces.
