work in progress – dear deer?

Dear Deer?

Here’s a photo of a piece in progress – not sure what the name of it will be at this point. Right now I’m sewing the ribbon trim around and will then move to sewing fabric yo-yo’s (or as my friend Neil says, DoYo’s) around the edges and beading inside the piece. The background is [...]

Off to the Big(ger) City & New Piece

Pentecost

So Pentecost is DONE and photo’d. I had some extra motivation due to a Surface Design Association newsblog deadline that was MONDAY. I’ll post a link to the essay once it’s up. Pentecost is about 13″ h, on blood red silk dupoini embroidery with these cool two-tone gold/orange beads plus some red ones. The Ale-8 [...]

new piece and another workshop scheduled

b is for full framed low

The Cleveland Institute of Art contacted me about teaching a working July 14 & 15, so keep posted on that. Most exciting detail about that: the workshop has a scheduled “Wine & Reflection” period at the end of each day. Fantastic! So I completed a new place over the break and started one as well [...]

The rabbit goes around the tree and into the ground, and other tales . . .

Gothic Vessel & me @ Form, Not Function, Carnegie Center for Art & History

Occasionally I do an Internet search with my name + art because you just never know (and sometimes perhaps ignorance IS bliss), but this time when I did it, this link to a short video came up of me demo’ing to high school art students how to sew down sequins and do a “shi-sha” mirror [...]

I’m a BELIEVER

This past week I sold my first ever artwork on Etsy.com, Lucky’s Happy Helper Altar, to a buyer out in CA.  And the commission was only $5 (vs the $75 it would have been in a for-profit gallery!). Hope it makes it out there without damage – that’s the most nerve-wracking part.  Here’s an interesting [...]

Magpie’s miscellany

Full Booth

FINALLY, the semester is wrapping up.  I’m on the last leg of paper grading (the most hated part of my job, an ironically cruel task as I normally love to read). Woman Made Gallery in Chicago is doing an Artisan Gallery Invitational, and I’m one of the artists with my glass necklaces: http://womanmade.org/show.html?type=solo&gallery=artisan-invitational2010&pic=1 My web [...]
