Really enjoying trying new #shibori techniques, this is a new stitch with two colors. Also working to get my new web site ready for the launch coming soon. Hope to be able to sale all my designs online. You can still get them at the Art Center @ 319 in downtown Smithfield. Keep checking here for shows and classes.
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.
This coming Saturday April 23rd I will be doing some embroidery and hand stitch work demonstrations at the Oak Level House in Isle of Wight as part of the Virginia Historic Garden Week. Make sure you visit my studio in the Arts Center @319 in downtown Smithfield.
My entry in the Bra Ha Ha event to raise money for womens’ breast health. You can see it and more creative and fun bras made by others from the Smithfield area at the Art Center @ 319. This creation was inspired by the persistant mother bird in my earlier post. Like in mother nature, we have to adapt, adjust, nurture and persist in helping all women have access to what they need for their health.
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 will be demonstrating this weekend in Suffolk at the Art Gallery. It has been a while since I have painted, and in public. i look forward to seeing the other artist at work as well. Stop by if you are local.
I have a silk painting workshop coming up in Smithfield at the Art Center@319, contact them to register. This is a day long class at the new location of Isle of Wight Arts League we will learn and practice several techniques and complete several samples and a finished silk scarf. The class size is limited due to space, so sign up early to try out this beautiful art form. It has been a couple of years since I offered this class, so I look forward to working with everyone.
It seems like scarves are the thing for this season. They have been selling as quick as I can get them out there. I have a few left if anyone needs a great last minute gift, please contact me and I can get it out to you.
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.
