Teaching, showing and more!

I am teaching an art class through Community Education in District 196 coming up at the end of March. I also just wrote a summer class for my annual class at the Commons on Marice in Eagan where I teach elderly and preschoolers together. It is a fun one and I chose some great projects this year!

I am currently showing at The Create Dining Studio in the Waterbury Building in NE Minneapolis. Wonderful location and setting for art. I'm hopeful for a successful show, seems to be a location in my art demographic.

I started selling Silpada Jewelry
I felt it would be a great social match to my solo art making.
Silpada is an ample muse!

I also will have a piece at the Burnsville Visual Art Society's Art Fete opening on 3/10
6-8pm at the Center for Performing arts in Burnsville.

Lastly, the proofs for my project came in for the entrepreneur with which I am working.
they look great! Can't wait to see the finals, gosh, what a haul its been. I am grateful and
proud of this entrepreneur, she's been wearing many hats and doing it pretty darn well.
Still finishing some web development for her too.

Commission for a theater

Here is a commission I just completed for a theater production in Eagan. It is a take off on Jack and the Bean Stalk and adds many fairy tale characters and icons. It was fun making this painting!

Knit Wit!

I needed something new and I wanted to learn something with my daughter. So we are taking a knitting class from Steven Be at the Yarn Garage in Rosemount. It is so nice, the textures and colors, WOW! I finished (as far as I can) my first project, maybe I will post it when it is completely done. Now I am knitting this highly textured accessory scarf. I have a lovely skirt pin made from Malachite bezel set into sterling that I will use to secure this scarf. I really like the knitting and hope to partner it with my new venture of selling Silpada jewelry. When I set displays I can use scarves like this one to help add depth, color and ideas to my table.

Ahhhh! Paper Mache People!

I am marketing my paper mache people. Here are some shots strung with wire.
