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.

I have finally found and organized photos of my work to post on the 5 day challenge. Thanks to Lisa Mosser for nominating me. I will start with earlier photos and move toward present day. Hope you enjoy as much as I have seeing all my art friends work over the past few weeks.
Seeing spots-painting dots, many silk scarf orders around here, this design has been a favorite this this spring/summer. I can see the end coming with this last 5 months of orders. Looking forward to new ideas and designs and I hope to have some samples and orders available for family and friends this summer.
I have some new classes coming in the next couple of week, at the Art Center @319, in Smithfield. Hope you can come and create some beautiful gifts. It is such a great experience and being close to the Holidays makes it a fun social event as well. Older teens and Adults.

I am painting plaids. Planning a quilt for J and looking for plaid fabrics, surprisingly, not many interesting ones available. My plan is to paint the designs on silk scarves then, use the ones that work for this project and turn them into “screens” for printing on cotton.
Really like these plaid stairs found them at Matters of Style.
Another plaid-not the colors for J but an interesting interpretation.
