School for the kids is winding down and I am looking forward to long, lazy summer days. I am so lucky to be doing what I love. As all artists out there know, it is so hard to be your own P.R. person, webmaster, and accountant and still be in the right head-space to create, let alone find the time in the studio. I have many ideas floating and am mulling over the most sensible way to execute them. I have an idea that I think may be a bit ambitious in scale so may modify it and downsize. It will be for my 'Womb Service" series and I need it soon for a show at Kingston Ontario's Sandra Whitton Gallery. Sandra is a lovely, cheery, talented fine jewelry maker that has a great gallery space and I will be showing with 5 (?) other fibre artists there. My Autumn is wide open which feels a bit odd, but perhaps will concentrate in providing work for the 2 galleries that represent me and also a couple of commissions with fall deadlines (oh, yeah, those!) This feeling of time on my side and long lazy days is suddenly fleeting. Life is still good... full of the love of family and good friends. What more can we ask for? enjoy this moment...

Gosh, it has been a while! After my long string of exhibits, I am now working on new work that I am very excited about. A new series titled "Womb Service" (only 2 in the "series" thus far) for a gallery in July and also more odd vessels and things! I am seeking local sources for a new body of work that I intend to be the "100 mile craft". It is not without challenges, but I have my wheels spinning. A contemporary juried show ahead as well as teaching the end of the month an "explorations" workshop and a nuno workshop in September here in Odessa, Ontario. Just a note that I do travel and teach . I have a daily rate/travel/accommodation arrangement that if you have a group is quite affordable! Bye for now!
