Arts in Bloom Weekend

Wow wow wow! Had a super time this weekend participating in an open studio tour in Steuben County NY. It was my first year as a demonstrating artist and I feeling inspired and grateful.  Here are some picts from the event :)  Please check out Arts In Bloom!  Our stop was at the ever magical Beulahland in Cameron Mills NY. Art, birds, vegan snacks, and lots and lots of love.
My mini paintings and such  
 
Some of my jewelry and prints 


We're all a work in progress, right?! :)

Birds' nests!

I am love love loving these!

Studio update!

What a great weekend! It was finally warm enough to work out on the balcony. Woot woot!!! I'm still prepping for Arts in Bloom the weekend of April 25 & 26. Here's a peek!


Seems like I'm really into circles right now! :) All pieces are up for adoption, please make contact for custom orders and such xoxox


 I'm calling this design (above) "Dream Cre8tors". Sort of like dream catchers, but more active...we can create our dreams!! I think no steampunk outfit should be without one!
These (above) are called "Worlds Under Glass" ...I could stare into them all day long.

Weekend Picts

I live in Western NY state, and it's still snowy and cold, which means I have no excuse not to work in the studio next to the fire all weekend. Here are some sneaky peeks of what I was up to:

Fun with Fire!

My local art guild has a juried show coming up with the theme "Fire" so yesterday I played with matches and fabric and beads and thread. Here's what came of my efforts:

DIY Print Tutorial Using Styrofoam

Been itching to try some litho type printing. Purchased a brayer a while back and some mounted linoleum.  Boy that was tough. Heard that styrofoam was an option so I cut up our take out container and Viola! (like the flower), it worked!

Some of these were more successful than others, but I think it's a good first attempt and can't wait to try some more. ..hey, any excuse to go out to dinner,  right? ;)

Been caught thriftin'!

Do you have a Habitat for Humanity Restore in your area? If so, you should check them out!
Found some aluminum flashing (I've been painting it), 2 lovely vintage scarves, an entire set of acrylic paints, and some some crackle medium all for less than 10 buckaroos!  Boosh!

Also, who wants to sing it with me? "Been caught *thriftin* once when I was five, I enjoy *thriftin, just as simple as that..." ;) (long live Jane's Addiction! !)

Howdy creative folks! I'm in Western NY, with A LOT of snow...which means I've had A LOT of time in the studio (woot!) all season. I'm going to be participating in a county wide open studio weekend April  25 & 26 and am having a blast creating various lovely items to fill my table. Check out artsinbloom.net/painters/ for more info.
