What’s been happening in 2016?
It’s been a while. Here’s what I’ve been up to…
Like many artists, I’m a team of one – with too many tasks & not enough time. This year has been filled with cool experiences, good changes (some painful), plus gleaning, organizing, purging, and tweaking nearly every area of my life — which, honestly, makes this Virgo very happy:)

2016: What a Year!
Most significant is my two week glass blowing experience with master glass artist Brian Corr in August at Penland School of Crafts. My very first time @ Penland & glassblowing…and what a first time it was!!
I am not set up for glassblowing in my own studio, but so many possibilities have opened up. (Recently visited STARworks for hot glass, cold beer night. In 2017, I’ll be heading back to play.)

This fall, I’ve been working on a private glass commission for a local business celebrating 20 years!! And, I have a smaller exterior public art commission (in Charlotte) starting in January 2017! (More about these later.)

Where can you find my handmade art glass?

ct-logoAnytime, my art glass is now at Coffey & Thompson Gallery, in Charlotte, NC. (Has a new owner, business direction, & new location at 1200 S Graham St.)
We’ll be part of South End Small Business Saturday on November 26 from 10am to 2pm. Come out to get a gift for yourself or someone else… or some inspiration, maybe see what’s happening in South End area closest to the Panthers’ stadium. The following week will be the C&TG opening reception for our small works for the holidays show. That reception is Friday, December 2, from 6 to 9 PM.

Also coming in 2017:
1) NEW website is in the works!! (Basically, this WordPress site is not easy to maintain and still looks funky after working on layout:( I lost “Constant Contact” mailing list button awhile back with no notice… & it’s not an easy fix!! Also, way too many problems uploading my images to this site. Therefore, new website is coming soon:)

2) Finally, most of you know I love the business end of things too! I’m currently venturing into a big project that will solve some basic problems for artists. In a nutshell, it’s an artist’s digital assistant. Want to be on THAT mailing list to find out more? Email me & I’ll add you:)
