Spring has sprung    April 27 2023
I just finished up my spring home workshop Illuminated Letters and it was a rousing success with students creating absolutely gorgeous panels that were richly embellished. I will be offering this workshop once again later this summer. I have semi-retired from teaching and will mostly just teach at my home. With a reduced teaching schedule I am looking forward to spending more time in my studio creating larger works, something I am very excited about. They will combine collage with clay which is a new direction my work has taken.

Happy New Year!    January 11 2023
Here's to 2023, may it be a wonderful year filled with good health, joy and happiness. I love the beginning of a new year and all of the possibilities it holds. 2023 is already brimming with creative opportunities. Next month is the Artburst Studios online show and sale. I have been very busy the last few months creating 11 new pieces for this show which features 20+ artists and over 230 pieces of amazing art for sale, something for everyone! Visit artburststudios.com for more information and enjoy reading the fabulous artist profiles. I also found out that my "crow shrine" was accepted into the Crow Show at The Studio Door gallery in San Diego. I am excited to be a part of this annual show for the first time. On another creative note, I have been thoroughly enjoying creating images using AI (artificial intelligence). It's a brave new world out there with unlimited possibilities!! Happy new Year.

Happenings!    November 12 2022
After months of wedding planning, I am back in my studio creating once again. My new line of tile stencils was recently released by Stencil Girl Products. These tiles were inspired by our recent trip to Portugal. Loved seeing all of the facades and interiors of buildings adorned with azulejos, the blue tiles. I released six different tile patters that reflect the many tile motifs we saw throughout Portugal. Speaking of travel, we just returned from our 10th year of our Tesoro del Corazon art retreat in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. My sister and I decided it was time for us to retire from the group after a great run of ten years. The legacy of this event that began in 2011 will continue on with new leadership and another artist, Katherine England, taking my place. Know it will continue to provide wonderful art adventures well into the future. Part of the reason I wanted to retire was to spend more time in my studio creating art. I was recently invited to join Artburst Studios for their inaugural online art show February 21-23, 2023. I have been working on many new pieces for this show. There are so many amazing artists who will be joining me and I encourage you to go to the Artburststudio.com website to check them out.
