On Deck

I am busy, busy, getting projects together that I will show this summer.  I’m continuing in work that is inspired by natural design (nests, eggs, plants, sheep, bugs…) and look forward to showing my work at a few outdoor festivals (my favorite!).

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I am creating kinetic sculpture. It’s very new and challenging for me, but quite exciting.  I will document my progress here.  Please check back often.  Also, below you will find a list of my upcoming exhibitions.  I’d love to see you this summer.

I am also happy to announce that I am working on my first book.  I am writing a children’s book called, “Hey, Where’d You Get That Sweater?”  It’s a picture book following the thread (!) from sheep to sweater (could possibly become “… Get Those Socks – we’ll see how much yarn we get from our harvest!).  I’m especially thrilled that I get to work on this project with my family.

Additionally, I am doing some teaching/assisting this summer.  I am teaching a workshop in kinetic sculpture at Northstar Junior High in June and get to assist amazing artist and teacher Erin Shafkind in the week-long teen camp, Plush Soft Sculpture, at Gage Academy.  There are still a few spaces – check it out.

Looking ahead to this fall, I get to move into my own classroom at Meadowbrook Cooperative Preschool.  I am very excited to get to work with a young population on a regular, long-term basis.  I have a year’s worth of fun, creative projects to do with the kids.  If you live in Seattle and have young children, I would love to visit with you about our preschool.  Please feel free to contact me.

Thanks for visiting : )
