Opening my studio

The day before yesterday I actually managed to open my studio to the public. (With a lot of help from my boyfriend.) There was an event on our street and it was the first day I people could visit. We had a few people stop by. I would have liked more but perhaps in the future and with more notice that it would be open would gather more attention.

With that in mind This coming weekend, Dec 9th & 10th), I intend to have it open again. 10am – 4 or 5pm. Possibly the following saturday as well. (And by appointment.) So if you are interested let me know, the studio is in Coxsackie NY.

I will update on my Facebook page as well. Below are photos of the studio on sunday.


Crafts & Art for the holidays

My award winning painting “tried in vain” and two other pieces of mine also done in the last year are showing at the Greene County Council on the Arts in Catskill, NY. If you aren’t familiar with the Annual Salon show it’s an experience not to be missed. Loads of artwork of all medium, styles, and subjects, hung high to quite low and all snug up together. What also makes it unique is that if there’s a piece you fancy and want to buy the staff cashes you out and takes it off the wall right then and there. That means you could find some wonderful gifts while supporting local artists and the art council. Here’s a photo of us hanging the show…

And my walnut ink drawing of a seated figure is on the left in this photo (the brown wood frame).

The Salon show is up now through early January.

This year I opted to sign up to be at a smaller craft fair. So if you want to see my lampshades (and me of course) come to “Christmas by the River” in Coxsackie this Sunday December 4th. I’ll be in the old fire house on South St, just go to the end of Reed and turn right. I’m looking forward to seeing some of you there. 

Where can you find me?

So right now I have the last few of my lampshades left over from the Saratoga Holiday Craft Fair set up in the Madison Theater in Albany.  A perfect fit I think considering they’re created using movie trailer film. What do you think? (Don’t you worry… I’m making more.)

Also I have a collection of smaller mandalas, both watercolor and digital, currently installed at the Davey Jones Gallery on Delaware Ave in Albany. See?
