Custom Work

Occasionally I get asked if I do custom work. I can but but sometimes, what is requested is beyond my skill set. Recently, a request was made. I had a piece on display that she liked. Then she sketched out her idea which I reinterpreted.  I sent photos and further modifications were made. What she ended up with was quite a bit different from where we began. Thanks Miss Nan for being such a great collaborator in the creative process

Lighten Up

For the past couple of years, I’ve been using distinctive displays for my wares. While these are eye catching and mostly effective, they are HEAVY! I came up with an all aluminum bracelet rack which is so much lighter and hopefully easier for the viewer to see.  Next big event to try this out will be Art Westport (Kansas City) in Sept.

Future Events

I’ve applied for half a dozen shows for fall/holiday season. I still waiting to hear back on most of them. Here’s what I’ve got lined up so far:

I’m delighted to be returning to Art Westport in KCMO, Sept 8-10!!! I’m planning to be in a large tent divided into quad spaces (usually on Pennsylvania, near Doughnut Lounge).

Also returning to Bizarre Bazaar in Lawrence KS, Nov 24& 25 (Thanksgiving weekend)

Looks like there will be more “Car Trunk Tetris” to be played.
