Really lovely, high quality prints (framed and unframed) of my artwork are now available on Minted. (And I’ll be adding more prints very soon.) Minted holds monthly design challenges and voters rate the best pieces in a highly competitive process. The winning pieces are produced and sold, and the artists earn cash prizes, a place in the Minted collection, and commissions on all sales. I'm really excited with how these prints look, so please check it out and share my store with friends who might be interested!
When I'm not in my studio, I have the great fortune of working in a public garden in Walnut Creek, California - The Gardens at Heather Farm. I love the quiet of the place and the amount of greenery and sunlight I take in while (still) mostly working at a desk and a computer. This year I wanted to experiment a bit and try something new with the adult education offerings and with the support or the director, I've launched an artist in residency program. It seems only natural that art and gardens should go hand in hand and I'm excited by the positive and enthusiastic support I've received for this project. Artists have been selected for this first round and I'll be posting more of their projects and work and my thoughts on managing a small residency program in its first year. I hope many more people who have the good fortune of working in interesting places might think about ways to open their doors to artists.
