We had a great time at the MOCA show last weekend in Virginia Beach and thanks so much to Nancy and Brenda at Shooting Star Gallery in Cape Charles for hosting my trunk show this weekend. I have my work available now through the holidays at The Art Center @319 in Smithfield and Pop Shop By Jo Louise in Hilton (Newport News). Please contact me if you need any last minute gift ideas, I have some beautiful silk scarves and the big tote bags.
I will have an exciting new creative space opening in 2017 so looking forward to seeing you all there-(hint) Pigs Will Fly. Make sure you sign up for my newsletter to keep up with all the news and creative ideas.
The busy season is will underway. I have several teaching projects happening and the show season officially start for me this weekend. I am on my way to Williamsburg for An Occassion for the Arts. It is a great show, so if you have a chance, stop by and see me and all the other wonderful artisans. I am on North Boundary Street booth number Y6. Looking forward to a successful season.

The weather has been great for working in the dye studio and getting ready for the Tidewater Quilt Guild Show next week. This the best part of my work, planning colors and patterns and seeing them come alive on the cottons linens and silks. Excited to be accepted in An Occasion for the Arts show this fall in Williamsburg. Looking forward to so much creating this summer.
It seems like the weather is finally warming and things are all green. It is the perfect time to get collect inspiration for my art and design projects. Some leave stamps and screens for printing are in the works. I have several classes coming up around the Tidewater area, so check out that page for all the locations and dates.
