stARTup Art Fair in San Francisco was a big success! Over the course of the 3-day event, my exhibition partner, Christine Rasmussen and I talked to almost 1,000 people, gave out hundreds of cards and sold several of our paintings.Read More
Last weekend I participated in Silicon Valley Open Studios with a group of 12 other fantastic artists. It was a wonderful weekend despite the light showers Saturday morning and afternoon. Thankfully the rain didn't keep people from coming out and enjoying the art. It was also a great weekend because 11 of my pieces found new happy homes.
I love doing these types of events because I get to meet so many new people and share my art with them. The encaustic process can be new to a lot of people so I was happy to explain it and show them samples of all of my supplies. Its such a magical process mixing the bees wax, resin and pigments and then fusing everything with fire.
I want to thank everyone who came out and visited me. Your support and encouragement mean so much.
This is my 12th year participation in Silicon Valley Open Studios. For the past 11 years I have opened up my studio to the public to share my work space and art. This year for several reasons I am not opening my studio up. Instead I am participating with a group of 12 other artists at a beautiful home winery in Los Gatos. This gives people the opportunity to enjoy a variety of artwork in one place. I am going to have lots of new artwork in a variety of sizes. I hope you can make it out to this amazing exhibit.
This is Mother's Day weekend. It's a fantastic opportunity to bring your Mom out for a great afternoon of art and wine and maybe even pick up a one of a kind gift for her.
Please join me for Silicon Valley Open Studios. Come and see where the magic happens! You can learn about my processes and techniques while touring my studio. I will have original artwork from my most recent series as well as prints, cards, gift items and more. I will also be bringing back my popular artwork raffle.
