- I guess you could say I was born an artist! My intrinsic artistic abilities appeared around the age of 1½ years old when I began scribbling colorful imagery on my bedroom walls, later carving designs and cryptic messages on my parent’s fine furniture. Over the years, I have continued my artistic endeavors working as a monotype printmaker, painter, mixed media artist, and jewelry maker.

Open Studios Roanoke is this coming weekend!
I always enjoy folks coming by the working studio to say hello, talk about art, and perhaps to find the right piece to start or add to their art collections!
This year I will be in my downtown studio on the second floor (there is an elevator) on 126 West Campbell Avenue, S.W.
(That's the end of Campbell near the Roanoke Times.
Also, Lenore Restaurant is right below my studio;
they have the best pizzas ever!)
So, come on by 10-5pm Saturday and Sunday, it's free!

I am just now getting back to blogging...I had to take a break to transplant flowers to the new beds, get back to work after spring break, and I have been working with a few new techniques I learned in a most stimulating workshop via the Studio School, by Maine artist, Pat Wheeler. I will tell you more about the process in another post.
I can not describe the energy in the workshop. It was wonderful to be in such a high energy, positive, and professional group! Click on the link to see Pat's website. Her work is incredible.
Also over the break, each evening, I worked on painting my new home studio. I had to laugh because one evening it was snowing, yes, in April! What I found even more amusing what that I chose a white color for the paint....the name of the color....Falling Snow! I just found that amusing...or was it the paint fumes? Now the studio is painted and I am ready to start setting it up. Hopefully that will happen soon! I already have my jewelry corner ready!
Hope your spring is as appreciated as mine! All the trees and flowers are coming up and out. So is the pollen!
Happy Spring everyone!
