2011 - Off to a Great Start!

It has been a busy January!  The big and happy news is that I am now represented by Julie Nester Gallery in Park City, Utah. And right off the bat she sold a big piece. And a commission for a similar piece is pending. I popped a bottle of sparkly the day that call came!

I'm in a two-person show called Drift with Marlana Stoddard-Hayes at Chehalem Cultural Center in Newberg.  Marlana makes beautiful paintings that she often begins by leaving mushrooms directly on canvas so it becomes stained with spores. I love that nature is helping create her work. Her paintings and my sculptures look great together. My piece, Emergent Properties, looks a bit like a 3D version of some images in one of her paintings. The Newberg area has some great wineries - you could make a day trip: explore a few wineries, peruse some art, and then finish off with a cocktail at the fancy Allison Spa and Resort. (Hmm, designated driver required perhaps?)
