The Journey


Have you ever stopped to think:
"how did I get to this place in my life?"

The last two days have been a whirl wind as I have been making art and trying to pack up as I have to leave in a few days to teach.
I have be working non stop in my studio. I can hardly believe that I made 5 pieces of art over the last few days.
Below are three that I can share with you now.

They are class samples for "the Journey" workshop that I will be teaching next week at
art unraveled in Arizona.
(there are still a few seats left if you would like to join in.)

Lover of My Soul

This class is based on my earlier body of work so these little books are packed with mixed media. It was interesting for me to revisit my old work as I geared up to create these books.

I hope you enjoy looking at the mixed media free standing wire books bellow and if you want to see all the details take a look at the slide shows for each of the books.
