Invitation, Upcoming Exhibitions, & News

It's been a busy couple months with lots of changes! The fall season is in full swing with lots of things coming up to keep me busy. I've been priviledged to start teaching as well. I currently have 5(!) classes and am enjoying every single one of them. Between all my classes my students range in ages from 10 to senior citizens with lots of newly minted adults in the middle. It's a huge change in my day jobs, but something I have whole-heartedly embraced and love.

First things first though, it's time to let everyone in to my studio to see all the work I've been working on. I've been included in several shows and also was convinced to write about my work on something other than an artist statement. You'll find all the information below. As always, I would love to hear how you are doing as well.

You are cordially invited to my

The editor's of Bourgeon Online Magazine have been asking me for some time to write about my work and my process for the "In Their Own Words" column. I finally capitulated, sat down, and wrote. It was hard discussing it all in one place. You can read the results here.
