30 Years and Little things.

 Rabbit on a Skateboard Shadow Box   This is an accomplishment.  It just dawned on me as I was rushing out the door to be at another art show that this month, is my 30 year anniversary being a professional artist.   It’s true. In some ways I feel I have come full circle.  In most ways, I am still pushing, still creating, still striving for the accomplished skills, accomplished gallery, accomplished notary, accomplished level of comfort, lifestyle..on and on. I’m still striving to stay relevant, contemporary and relate-able.  Each piece I create…I imagine…do they get me?  Do they get what…

Trunk Show….Whats that?

Trunk Show….Whats that? A question I am often asked. First of all, I will be having a trunk show at Jane Hamilton Fine Art Gallery this weekend.  Saturday and Sunday, February 2 & 3 from 11- 3. I will be featuring my”MENDED HEARTS” (large wall art hearts) for Valentine’s day and my new bench design:  “POPPY FIELDS” I will also have small gift hearts and functional wares. Come see all the colors featuring red, bright red and everything made with passion.     Mended Hearts Poppy Fields Bench     So where did the term “trunk show” originate from? According to Google, in…

Buy the Couch!

Happy February Folks. I recently bought a couch after the holidays.  It was a large purchase and one I had thought hard about. I researched on-line, went to local furniture stores, scrolled through FB Marketplace night after night.  I definitely was leaning towards a retro style but contemporary.    And it had to be TEAL. Now a teal sofa is not a common color for retail shops.  But there are plenty on the internet.  I have never made a furniture purchase on-line before…  but it seems everyone is doing it these days.  I mean for crying out loud, Amazon is selling…

Heart Art and February Happenings

We are about half way through January 2019.  Happy New Year Ya’ll! I am relieved the holiday season is behind us, although a little sad because I love the Christmas season and the joyousness of it all.  But I  look forward to new projects the Lord has given to me for the new year.  Every now and then I am asked, “where do I get my inspirations and ideas from?”  It’s all from God!  He made me, he knows how I am and he puts ideas in my head.  I just go with it.   Every single person has special gifts…

Give the Gift of Making Art! 2019 Mosaic Workshops.

      Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas.  We are in the thick of the holiday season. It is the perfect time to offer my mosaic workshops for those who would like to give something fun for a Christmas or Hanukkah gift.  From January to April, choose from 4 separate workshops. First of all, it is easy.  Anyone can do it.  It is fun.  Do you like fun?

Prepare to be Wowed.

Next weekend is the Chris Bubany Holiday Marketplace held at Harlow Gardens.   NOvember 3 & 4 I am proud to be a part of this show every year because it premieres the best artisans in the Tucson area  and it is held at one of the prettiest nurserys in town.  I mean Harlow Gardens is a gorgeous setting.  For me, it begins my season for offering new work I have been working on all summer. So many people come back to this show year after year to grab up beautiful gifts, art and lovely plants as well. I love seeing fellow artists and…
