you are invited


First I would like to thank ART LEAGUE WEST for asking me to do a critique and demonstration for their members.
I will be teaching a workshop in mixed media called FREE PLAY in March 2012. (exact dates are being processed) The classes will be held in Avondale, Az.
Please email me for more information.
Artists are invited, non members included, to attend the four separate 5 hour workshops.
Demonstrations will be given on how to gather, alter, prepare, combine surfaces and techniques. You will learn how to evaluate your works in progress, how to improve your work making it ready to show and sell. This is a great class for the novice artist as well as for the seasoned artist.

I consider myself an eco friendly artist/teacher and will help you make great art using traditional and non traditional materials, keeping the cost of making art low.

Hope to see you there.

triple stack

Yes, I am still busy making art jewelry to sell on vendor day at three teaching venues. Artiscape Ohio in April, Art Unraveled Arizona in August, and Art is You California in September. The triple stack in the photo consists of a beaded bracelet with handcrafted disk beads, a silvery taupe leather bracelet with brass studs, and a fabric cuff with abstract bead work. The cuff includes some shiny mirror like disks to catch the light.

I understand that there was/is a problem when trying to leave a comment,
If you want to comment and have a problem, please email me.
Comments are always welcome and appreciated.

I would also like to thank Lori of Studio Waterstone for being so sweet in answering my questions. Please stop by her website if you want to see some gorgeous purses.
