There also was a green house full of delicate flowers being Spared the possible brutal forces of nature; the young flowers are nicely protected from harm during the unpredictable spring showers and changing temperatures of the season.

My new art installation involves many mixed media. One element is my interpretation of Graffiti Art inspired by the West side of the Berlin Wall. Here is a Sneak Peek at one of the 13 panels I created on recycled dresser drawers. I used spray paint, collage, acrylic and found items. Look out for info on two upcoming solo art shows this summer.

I am getting really excited about the upcoming workshop with Kate Church, on May 22nd to the 27th. This super exciting workshop is being held at The Blue Moon Winery. When I attended last year, I met some incredible new friends, learned some great new techniques using polymer clay, and without a doubt was thrilled to meet Kate Church and learn from her. This year, we are taking the craft of art dolls to the next level and I can’t wait to share with you all what I learn and create. In the meantime, let me share a peek at our homework and our inspiration for the workshop. Wishing you all the best day. xoxo
