Madonna Lilies revisited

Madonna Lilies revisited

As I’m getting ready for the 12th Annual Autumn Open Studio, I revisited Madonna Lilies, 1 of 3 large works that I’m showing for the first time.

New Paper and Bead Artifacts

This week I finished some paper and bead artifacts that have been in process for a while. One reason I like opening my studio four times a year, is for the deadline effect.

Some things you’ll see at Spring into Art

Some things you’ll see at Spring into Art

I’m not telling all, but just some things you’ll see at Spring into Art. Having my studio open four times a year motivates me to come up with surprises, new art, new projects, new products, new landscape vistas. It is a peek experience to greet and show you around, I would never want to hear that you have been here before and therefore, seen it all. (more…)
