I Love Chartreuse, Virginia Beach
With the shopping season coming fast, I hope everyone will think about shopping a little different and support local and independent business. It is very inportant to help keep these places going, they are you friends and neighbors and Hampton Roads has much to offer. My work as well as many other creative gift ideas can be found at the following places.
Shooting Star Gallery, Suffolk
The Arts Center @319, Smithfield

In prepartaion for the Holidays, I need to clean and rework my spaces, to decorate and for visitors. I think I need to make an inspiration board. With so many things going on, it helps me to have a visal plan.
Off to another busy week, here with deliveries and all. What is going on with you, the season is near?
This is a beautiful mood board.
I have been painting away, and we will be painting in my classes this coming week. Hope to have some new workshops in direct silk painting, screen printing collage in Smithfield at the Art Center @319. I will have my Etsy shop open again next week for all the scarves and shirts.
New pieced fabric shawls. Orders going out, but will have some available for the Holidays.
I really love this plaid fabric ruffle.
People have been “dyeing” all day.
Hand painting silk scarves to be shipped out.
I am loving working with black and white.
Monday here again. Things are piling up around here. Orders are going out and students are coming for classes. It is going to be a busy week, but I can see a clear place after a couple more weeks of keeping my head down. Hope to have some time to clear the air and focus on new designs and some others ideas I have on the radar.
I have been sewing and sewing lately, with all the bag orders. This week I had to start a new order for some scarves, so I am painting on silk again. It is something I really love, I never realized how relaxing it is for me. This is an artist I have admired for many years Kerr Grabrowski. She uses a technique disconstructed screen printing, to create the layered affect.
A working weekend for me, and student in the studio next week. Always a fun time.
