Virginia, United States
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.

This was a banner I saw on the infamous facebook. The words resonated and I wanted to share this will my blogging friends. 
Now, get out there and create...

Art on the Parkway, Floyd

  Art on the Parkway

Saturday, October 15th and 16th
The weather is holding out for us all!!!!
This is art festival where artists show and sell their creations on the grounds of Tuggles Gap Restaurant & Motel in beautiful Floyd County. 

Located at the intersection of Rt. 8 and Milepost 165.2 of the Blue Ridge Parkway, and held during peak autumn color, Art on the Parkway connects "leaf peepers" and art patrons with area artists and musicians. Last year, several hundred people came to see and buy art, making it a very successful event for artist vendors. We anticipate even larger crowds for 2011.

Sat. 8-5 Sun. 11-4

Fall Soldered Pendant Workshop

     This past weekend was my first soldered pendant workshop! I wanted to say thank you to the Studio School for the usage of the space! I also wanted to thank everyone that came! I enjoyed it immensely and was amazed at all the creativity! Check out some of the finished pendants! (I will add more images soon.)

     I will be offering a second workshop on a Saturday in mid-January or February! Hope to see you there.
