September 2022 Newsletter

Ahoy lads and lasses,

It's officially fall! Time for Santa Cruz Open Studios 2022!

I will be showing my work at the Santa Cruz Art Center with one of my best friends, the talented Cloisonné Jeweler Darci Shea, as well as quilter and mixed media artist Ann Baldwin May. I will be doing both North County weekend, October 1 and 2, as well as All County weekend, October 15 and 16. 
And hey, check it out! I made the North County artist's page in the Artist Guide! (see page 5 in the paper version)

I'll have the piece I'm working on in this photo finished just in time for Open Studios this year! Come by and say hi, see my work and learn a little more about my process.
