Come see me @ Appalachian Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair!

My visit to Upper Arlington High School in Columbus was a ton of fun, and working with their lead arts educator, Alicia McGinty, was great. Yet another opportunity in that part of Ohio, which makes it easy to visit my parents and CCAD/Cols Art Museum friends! This coming Saturday (December 4th), photographer Ann Olson and [...]

That’s what I get . . .

Gothic Vessel (After Duccio)

for fussing on about not having a lot going on, since the universe has now handed me a stack of self-induced and externally requested activities. Out of the Concourse Gallery exhibition in Upper Arlington (read: Columbus), Ohio, came a visiting artist residency opportunity at their high school! So I’ll be up there the 22nd/23nd (of [...]

Art Collage Glass Tile Pendants

Bird in Space art collage glass tile necklace

I ordered a bunch of supplies to make the uber-popular glass tile pendants, and am having a blast cranking them out. They are made with smooth edged glass tiles and have mini art collages decoupaged on the back with Diamond Glaze. The jewelry “bail” is attached with sturdy E6000. After an enthusiastic review person-to-person and [...]

Secret to success

as an artist? Can you go ahead and make plans, submit work, and get in the studio immediately after (or during?!?!?!) a major artistic ego stomp? If the answer is affirmative, good for you, because it’s going to happen sooner or later and you need that tenacity to carry on. Consider this a “pep” talk [...]

Fabric dyeing adventures with Mary Lamb Nehring

Ladies Textile Terrorist Society

My friend & fellow textile artist Mary Lamb Nehring hosted me in July for a quick and dirty art cloth workshop. I’d always been curious about surface design techniques that involve dyes, but didn’t want to make the investment in the studio and supply needs necessary. It was great going to Mary’s studio and playing [...]

Oh Hon . . . You must go to Baltimore!

Little Italy restaurant - lobster ravioli is yummy

Admittedly, I was on the fence about the upcoming American for the Arts conference in Baltimore the weekend of June 26th since it followed right on the heels of the CraftSummer class and due to my arrival at midnight on Friday, I had already missed John Waters and Arianna Huffington, BUT, Saturday I was able [...]

CraftSummer 2010

Me & Cabana Boy (Ron Stevens)

It’s been nearly a week since my Surface Design in Textile Collage class wrapped up. What a wild group! Of course, I’m pretty good about creating a “permissive” environment, and the ladies just ran with it. It’s a kick to be paid to sit in a room with a bunch of rabble rousers, listening to [...]
