My Imagination

Doors and windows. To me, these represent opportunity, curiosity, and possibility.

I am happy to be a guest poster on the PaperArtsy blog, sharing this piece that I made based on the theme of doors, windows and architecture.

Head over to this post to read more about this artwork and all the ingredients that went into it, and to see additional images.

#ARTifacts: February 2017

Artifacts (plural noun): objects made by a human being, typically an item of cultural or historical interest.

ARTifacts (plural noun): a collaborative project for 2017 documenting adventures in art.

Every year I have so many "art memories" from my travels, my teaching, my adventures in NYC, and my studio work. I have decided that 2017 will be the year of ARTifacts where I document my adventures in art for the entire year in a physical book. Always wanting to be inclusive, I turned my project into a no-rules collaboration.

Participants were asked to find or make some sort of artist book, planner, scrapbook, 3-ring-binder, folder, or other container to document their creative experiences, whether they be in art, craft, or anything else.  As you can see below, each and every participant put their own creative twist on this project. And it is never too late to join. Email me at if you would like to participate.
