change is in the air.....a little announcement~

i will be opening my home studio for workshops in january 2015!
i love teaching workshops and continually have students ask if i teach in my home studio.  at the moment, my studio is a smallish room in the front of my house and serves as my art and metal working space.  (it's getting very crowded)!!  i'm in the process of tricking out the open space above my garage (a whole apartment) into my new ART studio.  i have used this space in the past for a few fabulous workshops and then would shift gears and rent it out, or have guests stay there.  as all things change, this space has undergone many!  appropriately called heART space, this was my mom's apartment before she passed away several years ago.   i honor her through my art and by using her space as inspiration for others.  anytime i am in that space making art, my heart is full with memories of her and all that she instilled in me.  she truly was my best art teacher.   my first guest artist in the space was judy wise.  (one of my favorite humans).... she came all the way from oregon to wilmington, nc.  it was a weekend i will never forget.  my passion for teaching has exploded since then and i am ready to spread my wings a little more and offer workshops and classes in my heART space!  i will post all workshops here, and on my Facebook page.  please stay in touch and come visit for a workshop or class when you can!  i will also open this space to artists who would like to teach in a small and intimate setting.  please email me if you are interested in teaching as a visiting artist.

i will teach an array of mixed media classes, from collage and art journaling to plaster and wax.  we will make books, play in art journals, be free on canvases, and much more.  i will also have open studio times where artists can bring in whatever they are working on and just play! stay tuned for more info. and photos of the space.  i will share the transformation as i go!
