Beginnings often afford us chances to
reflect on moments past and imagine
possibilities for the future.

It is a new month... a new year, and there
are some really wonderful happenings
occurring here in the studio, with a
number of exciting opportunities as
I continue exploring my love of art
and nature.

I am especially thrilled to share that I
will be expanding my work in the area
of product design, and completely OVER
that there soon will be even
more retail products available for purchase.

In 2011, I will once again be working closely
with the very talented staff of Windham
Fabrics/Baum Textiles designing new
patterns, along with promoting my popular
new collection, Nature Inspired

I will also be working on additional retail
projects with several other companies,
those details I hope to share with you
later this year. As well as, seek new licensing
opportunities, and build a greater presence
in my on-line shop.

All of this will require many hours of painting
and design work, and I look forward to bringing
you along on this journey with me, sharing lots
of updates and sneak peeks.

Because of these licensing commitments,
I will only be accepting a few invitations
to teach, thus keeping the experience very
personal, intimate, and ensuring that close
bond with magical moments shared between
students and myself.

But never fear, even though I am scaling
back on teaching, I already have some
SUPER workshops scheduled in the
coming months, so I hope you will join me.
(But don't wait too long to sign-up, as
early 2011 classes are filling quickly...
CHECK THEM OUT here, here, and here)

And remember, you can find a current list
of venues, in the right most column of this

There is more art, verses of poetic journaling,
and bits of nature inspiration to come but for
now, here is wishing you...

A Very Happy New Year!!
