Anyone Interested?

Interesting.   Didn’t think I’d like to blog.  Is anyone really interested in what is going on in my life?  I know we are in such a communication frenzy: Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Messenger, etc.  I’m of the “old school” (and old!) and prefer to live a quiet and private life like a lot of artists.

I have been an artist my whole life (well up to now, at least) but now that I have retired I am devoting the rest of my remaining years to create as much art as I can, enter as many juried shows possible, and enjoy every second.

I have so many projects in my head and heart that I may never complete but will give it a good try.  Every day is a blessing.

“50 to Watch”

It has been an exciting March!  Last month I was chosen to participate in the Art On 30th gallery event, “50 to Watch”.  Only 50 artists were chosen from a wide range of artistic abilities that included painting, sculpture, fiber, & photography.

Also, a full-color booklet was published containing chosen artwork of each artist and sent to 1500 galleries nationwide!  What an honor!

Recycled Art & Fashion Show in Temecula

The Recycled Art & Fashion  Show in Temecula at the Monte de Oro Winery was a great success!  Many wonderful creations were presented including my First Place Award winner, “Allons-y” from their previous event in 2016 and my new creation, “Order’s Up!”.  “Allons-y” was made with outdated atlas pages and worn by Megan Halsey.  “Order’s Up!” was constructed of recycled coffee filters, worn by Taylor Miller.

The Recycled Art & Fashion Show presents original, eco-friendly art and fashion from arts professionals and college and high school students within the community. It promotes innovative re-purposing of consumer waste and raises environmental awareness with an exciting runway event and visual art display. Proceeds support Mt. San Jacinto College student scholarships and student/community events.
