Shop Update and Warm (and dry) thoughts for Pittsburgh

My final outdoor show for the 2018 Summer Show Season was A Fair in The Park, presented by the Craftsmen’s Guild of Pittsburgh. This was my first year at the show and I was impressed by the high quality of work, the outstanding level of organization, and the┬ávery enthusiastic crowd of visitors and buyers on Friday. Sadly, the show was shut down both Saturday and Sunday because of endless rain from a storm system connected to Tropical Storm Gordon. Frustrating? Yes. But I am grateful to the Guild’s show committee for making the difficult, yet very right, decision to close the show early Saturday. Thanks to their concern and quick action, I had no damage to my work — much of whiich you will be able to find online over the next days and weeks: ONLINE STORE

The rain followed me through much of my drive home, and as of this writing, a State of Emergency has been declared in Allegheny County due to record rainfall and flooding. I send warm (and dry) wishes to the residents of Pittsburgh and hope to be able to visit them again under better and dryer circumstances.

In addition to my online store, follow me for Work in Progress shots on FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM. And, as always, feel free to CONTACT ME with any questions about work that you saw at a show but can’t find listed online.


Say Cheetos!

Guilty! I have not posted here for a very long time. I’ll blame it on these creatures. These are my new Mixed Media Mache Copper Tailed Cats! They are made out of recycled materials, polymer clay and acrylic paint. There’s still more work to go on these, as well as their four legged friends who didn’t make it into the picture, but they will be traveling with me to the Willoughby Arts Fest and Ithaca Artists Market this month.
