My first Jazz Fest showing was in incredible (and near sell-out!) success filled with good people, great background music, honors, and great weather. I've included some pics of my display from the show here for you. If you were not able to make it out to the fest, please enjoy this mini-sampling of my work. If I saw you out there, you might enjoy reliving the experience just a bit. I'm happy to share that I received the award for Best of Show in Contemporary Crafts. I am honored and thrilled to receive the award, and can now safely say that I will return to show at Jazz Fest again next year. But that's a year away! So much can happen by then.
I've been absent from my blog for a week since Jazz Fest as I took some much needed rest. But I'm returning to the studio slowly, where I will be working for the summer on commissions and new works. If you have any questions about availability of works post-jazz fest, or would like to schedule a studio visit this summer, please email me.
I will be providing more information about commissions in a future blog-post.
Thank you to all my customers, fans, supporters, friends and family who helped me to get to this point in living my dream. Many of you have thanked me for making my art, and I want you to know that it is that type of encouragement that keeps me going. It is because of your valuable support that I am able to make this artwork and this life.
With deep gratitude,
