Shop Handmade for the Holidays

We all are reconsidering what the holidays means to us and our families. I think everyone wants to celebrate and give presents with more meaning. Handmade gifts and original art gifts are a wonderful way to show someone special that you care. 

Here are some more sneak peaks at what I will be selling at "Pattern Dreams - A Holiday Art Bazaar".
Come join us Nov 22 at Topaz Salon 2003 Hopkins St. Berkeley from 1-3:30pm.

Let us help you give more handmade gifts. You might even shop for yourself- I won't tell.

"Pattern Dreams" A Holiday Art Bazaar

I can't tell you how excited I am to have a gallery showing. I feel embarrassed to admit this but it will be my first gallery show since my BFA show. 
I feel like I have come such along way since then. No, it really has be along time and a long way. A pilgrimage of sorts. 

It will be a fun and exciting time to meet other artists and sell some work. We planned the opening as a holiday bazaar so we could increase our sales. I am glad my "first opening" will be sales focused. I think that will help it feel more successful.
I will have paintings, jewelry, and artist books for sale there.
So between now and then I am carving out more and more time to make and finish pieces. I have to focus on the finishing part. A struggle, but good for me.
Please join me Nov 22 at Topaz Salon in Berkeley from 1-3:30.

Holiday Gallery Show at Topaz

Yesterday was a great day in the studio. I am working on some pieces for my first show in over 15 years. I am so excited. I will be showing some paints, artist books, jewelry and postcards. I will confirm the details soon with Topaz in Berkeley and send out an announcement.

This is a Holiday show so we will have items for sale in varied price ranges. There will be about 4 artists total which will make it a well rounded gift shopping experience.

After the opening we can go down the block to my house for an after party!
