It’s Been Too Long!

To those who have followed my blog in the past, it’s good to have you back. It’s been too long since we last connected. For those new to my site, WELCOME . I hope you’ve all been well and enjoying the summer. I myself have been busy with family, work and life in general, while trying to find time to be creative.

Since you’ve been away you’ll see my penguin family has grown, with new prints and new SONY DSCcharacters. I love penguin babies and coming up with different ways to express them and theiractivities. I look forward to creating more scenes for the whole family to enjoy. See the rest here.SONY DSC

I’m also in the process of creating new necklace, earring and bracelet designs for all occasions to be enjoyed by anyone, anywhere. Stones, wood, ceramics, paper and colors alone and in combination to bring out there natural beauty. Look for new pictures and additional blogs to come.

My last show was over Memorial Day weekend; so it’s time to get those vendor applications in for the rest of summer and fall, where I can see old friends and meet new ones. Although it’s easier to stay somewhat close to home in Oregon, I will be looking for additional venues in Washington, so be sure to stay tuned for my upcoming schedule. Until then, take a look around my site and find your new treasure.

As always I appreciate your patronage and would love to hear your thoughts.  So, post comments, won’t you?

Great Gifts and Stocking Stuffers

Have you ever just been too tired, too busy, too stressed out, or just not in the mood to go to the mall…especially around Christmas?  Well, If you feel any of these things, I invite you to sit back, relax and enjoy shopping from your very own sofa or table. Let me take the tension out of the season so you have time to spend doing equally as important activities such as cooking, being with family, soaking in a hot tub, or just reading or watching TV.  The unique gifts I handcraft are not sold in department stores.  They are one of a kind pieces made from metal, gemstones, crystals, silver, gold, paper and paint.

A Bittersweet Goodbye

What a great summer!  Hard to believe this weekend unofficially marks the end to it all.


Promised and Delivered

Ok, today is the day I deliver on my promise!  I promised to get creative and motivated, and to post new artwork and jewelry; so here they are!    Please take a moment to see what I have prepared for you and if they please you as much as they do me.  (See larger images on Jewelry  and Watercolor pages!)  

Art in all forms is such a subjective thing.  Sometimes a piece just hits us where our heart is and we can’t live without it, sometimes we may like it, but not love it, and sometimes it stirs nothing, or possibly even displeasure. (more…)
