In our passive solar designed front room at mid-winter it is full of the returning light, it’s our favorite time for being indoors. Fingers crossed that it will be sunny for the next Sunwise Open Studio Event on February 2. The theme is Valentines. You are welcome to make your own from materials supplied in the studio. (more…)

In the works: a class, Atlas of the Year: mapping the path of our true being. (more…)

The snow days have provided long quiet days to proceed with the creative tasks at hand. I’d like to share what’s going on.
