The summer that flew by!!!

It has been so long since I wrote a real blog post. I have been traveling so much this summer. I first taught in San Jose, Ca. in June, July I was at Jeanne Oliver's amazing studio, and then Art Unraveled in Phoenix. I am preparing my trip to Italy right now....busy making plaster wings for the students! We aren't making books but will incorporate these wings in our figures.

This will be my 2nd time in Italy. I fell in love the first time and knew I just had to go back. Leaving Sept. 9 so I will have lots of news and adventures to tell you when I get back.

Italian Winged Figures Workshop in Orvieto, Italy Sept. 9-15, 2018

I taught in Orvieto, Italy in the fall of 2016. This was my first trip to Italy. I fell in love immediately, but I always knew I would! We flew into Rome and spent a couple of days before traveling to Orvieto. After unpacking we took a walk to the nearby piazzo where I had my first Italian street musician experience. This site and sound was definitely meant for me! I know this is quite common place for Italians, but for me it brought me to tears. It was just one on those magical moments I will always remember.....always!

Expressive Portraits Live Workshop at Jeanne Oliver Studio July 13-14 2018

I have been teaching online classes on Jeanne Oliver's site for several years now. It is always a pleasure and so much fun to plan and talk with Jeanne. I took a live class with her at Donna Downey's studios last year and we instantly bonded with eath other, but I knew that would be the case from prior online communication. It is so important to me to have that personal connection with the people I work with. It enables me to do the best job I can do so it is with sincere intent and joy that I will make this workshop amazing for everyone involved!

I haven't traveled since my trip to Italy in the Fall so I have had a good chunk of uninterrupted studio time

I haven't traveled since my trip to Italy in the Fall so I have had a good chunk of uninterrupted studio time. So important to slow down and get focused. I am very disciplined when it comes to my studio time. It is a 9-5 job for me. When I have "dial it in days" I pivot and will work on promotions, organizing my stuff, get on the web for inspiration but I stay in my studio!
