Mixed Media Necklace
This item is available for purchase by contacting .
As some of you already know, I suffered the loss of my granddaughter Nicole three months ago. and if that were not enough I lost the lease to my studio a week later. I have not had the energy to look for a new space or even to post on my blogs as often as I would like...I know you will understand. I am working on my jewelry line and a few small art projects from my in home studio. I will keep you posted on the new works and give you information on up coming workshops on this site and on . Items for sale can also be found on .
The necklace on this post has an element from a charm exchange and a piece of sea glass embraced with fantasy film.

watercolor portrait

This is a sample of what I do with left over demo pieces. The demonstration was about reverse printing, collage and over spraying. Months later, I used the demo piece to teach a beginner watercolor portrait class. I love the marks where the reverse printing became part of her hair, some will see the marks on her face as mistakes...I see them as creative opportunities. I will be teaching these techniques this fall in Fort Collins , Colorado. Check this site and here also for workshop information.
