I have a couple exhibitions this autumn that I wanted to let you know about.
“Alpine”, ready to be hung at Phipps Center for the Arts along with three other works
Coming up is the exhibition “National Parks – Personal Narratives” at the Phipps Center for the Arts in Hudson, WI. My experiences in America’s National Parks were a major source of inspiration as I completed my most recent body of work. I’m looking forward to seeing how National Parks influence other artists’ work, as well.
I currently have three pieces in a group exhibition at Wargo Nature Center in Lino Lakes, MN. I love the idea of showing work related to nature in a nature center. You can view the art and the inspiration all at once!
What: “Systems in Nature”, a group exhibition Where:Wargo Nature Center, Lino Lakes, MN When: on view through December 2016
If you can make it to either of these exhibitions, let me know!
Sunday, May 5 is the date of my first art market of the season, at SOWA Open Market in Boston’s South End. It is also the opening day for this weekly event with over 100 vendors. You can surely expect a fun atmosphere, amazing arts and crafts, and lots of good food. It’s also a great chance to go shopping for Mother’s Day.
I’ll have handbound journals, notebooks, and sketchbooks for sale, as well as some artwork. Many of the books I’ll have at the market are not available in my shop, and have never been seen before.
I hope to see you there!
When: Sunday, May 5, 10 AM to 4 PM Where: 500 Harrison Ave. Boston, MA 02118

The holidays are here. Even as we speak, I’m listening to my number one holiday jam:
I’d like to invite you to 2 things this month.
The first is this:
The Old South Church Christmas Craft Fair! I’m very excited about this one, it’s right in downtown Boston in Copley Square, in the beautiful and historic Old South Church. Have you been in this church? I also just learned that the kindly mayor of Boston has allowed for 2 hours of free parking on city streets on Saturdays during the holiday shopping season. Perfect! When: Saturday, December 1, from 9:30 am – 3:30 pm Where: 645 Boylston Street, Boston, MA 02116
The second is the Hundreds Show at the Lincoln Arts Project Gallery. I will have two works on display in this group show full of amazing and affordable artwork! Join me at the reception! When: December 5 – January 12 Where: LAP Gallery 289 Moody Street, Waltham MA Reception: Friday, December 7, from 7 pm – 10 pm
Lastly, I have announced holiday shipping deadlines in my Etsy shops (this one, and this one). My suggested order deadline for standard shipping to US locations is December 17. This allows for about a week for me to pack up your gift and for it to arrive in your mailbox, no matter where you live in the country. If you need rush shipping, that is always an option and you can contact me!
It’s been a busy autumn over here! I’ve got a few things lined up through December that you may be interested in hearing about.
This coming Saturday I will be selling my handbound journals and sketchbooks at the Women’s Club of Newton Highlands Holiday Art Market. If you’re in the Boston/Cambridge area, it’s a great opportunity to support local artists and crafters and get some holiday shopping done! And guess what: I now accept credit cards! No, I didn’t get an iPhone or other iDevice. I got a good old-fashioned knucklebuster. Also, I made some little ornaments that can be hung from trees or windows or other hangy places. I’m working on making a stand for them.
What: Women’s Club of Newton Highlands Holiday Art Market Where: Hyde Community Center, 90 Lincoln St, Newton Highlands, MA 02461 When: November 17, 2012 from 10 AM – 4 PM
In December I will be involved in another art market, this time in downtown Boston, as well as a month-long art show. Stay tuned for details!
For the past several months I’ve been focusing so much of my energy and time on bookbinding. Lately I’ve really wanted to incorporate more drawing into my life. After a day of deliberating and scouring my own books and the internet for inspiration, I began working on a large graphite drawing. Here is just a little sneak peek.
