2019 is shaping up to be a stellar year

I have been awarded two residencies!!
I have been selected as one of 52 artists in residence for two weeks Haystack late May into June. This is a tremendous honor and perfect timing for me to use the facilities of the fab lab, metals shop and print shop to finish up work for my June exhibition "intimate universe" (details forthcoming).

I have also just been notified that I am one of three Maine visual artists selected for a Maine Farmland Trust residency. This is a one month residency at the Joseph Fiore Art Center in Jefferson Maine. Having spent time in Jefferson since I was a child I am honored to be spending time in this wonderful part of my home state of Maine. 

Other dates to keep in mind:

June 15th exhibition opening at Zero Station


August 24th Portland Fine Craft Show- I will be there with my jewelry. 
August 25th Open House at the Joseph Fiore Art Center in Jefferson, ME
