I have recently returned from an amazing trip back to my old stomping grounds of undergrad at Pittsburg State University. Annie Pennington and I returned in March to give presentations of our work and attend the opening. As alumni of Pitt State and attendees of the same graduate university we carry quite a load of memories together both as colleagues and best friends. We stayed in a wonderful home owned by the university that is filled with history and amazing documents and collectibles left by Ted Sperry, a Dr. of Ecology and professor from the 1940s to the 1970s. We were also surprised with a visit from our very influential instructor, Marjorie Schick, who flew in from California and gave a heartwarming introduction for us, and left us with some wonderful gifts and new memories. We were welcomed by the faculty and new and old students. It was truly an amazing experience! Here are a few images to enjoy.
Last weekend I participated in the On and Off Fredericksburg Road Studio tour along with my studio mate Gary Schott. We rent a space off of the main drag on Fredericksburg and were able to open up our studio for folks to browse around. We had a great turnout of people, colleagues, and friends. I wanted to give a shout out and thanks to all that came out to support us and share some images of some of the work that one of our friends, Igor Gregorio, snapped while visiting. I also received a surprise visit from sister and brother-in-law from Houston, which made for a great demo of soldering for onlookers! My sister has now learned some metalsmithing skills.

One exhibition featured was “Governing Bodies” which included myself and 10 other female artists whose work focused on a range of themes surrounding women’s roles, healthcare, identity and gender.

Well my website finally got a facelift thanks to my creative husband Noah. I have been needing to get new work up and re-organize photos etc. Although Noah missed out on festivities over the weekend because he had to get his wisdom chompers removed, he managed to have some extra time to spend in front of the computer. As I spent the the weekend with family visitors and traveled to Houston he reworked my website! Check out some of the new work, commercial section, and feel free to subscribe to my blog/mailing list for the newest updates and news. Enjoy!
This past weekend I had the privilege to participate in a workshop at the Southwest School of Art with the visiting artist Martin Smith. The workshop titled “Why Machines” was an open interpretation of machines that create sound. Throughout the two days, we incorportated sounds into mechanical devices that could be turned, squeezed, rotated, pinched and anything in between. We were given no limits and could use any materials available. This was quite a creative challenge for me because in my work I focus more solely on form, fabrication, and surface design.
