New work headed to Boston!

Super honored to have been invited by the Society of Arts + Crafts to show my work along side 23 other amazing artists! From Minimal To Bling is the Society's 6th biennial show in a brand new location. Sales at this exhibition serve a dual purpose, supporting their mission of education and outreach in the crafts field, and supporting the individual artists creating this work. 

The exhibition is cash/carry, meaning purchased pieces can go home with you! Just in time for holiday gift giving.  If your are in the area, make sure to stop by.

2015 Annual Faculty & Alumni Fine Art Auction

Each year a huge number of faculty members and alumni from the arts related departments at Academy of Art University put their work up for Annual Faculty & Alumni Fine Art Auction. It goes to a great cause. 50% of the proceeds go to benefit the Academy of Art University's Student Scholarship Fund in their related departments. The remaining proceeds go to the artist. It's a cause I feel strongly about since my contribution, and those of my colleagues in Jewelry and Metal Arts, will end up helping students in our very own department.

I am proud to say that I have a small collection available for bidding this year; a group of my paper jewelry pieces. Each was hand crafted here in my SF studio and have been shown around the world. Most notably in the 2014 Beijing International Jewelry Arts Biennial. Each piece is made of oxidized sterling silver, abaca paper (hand-made by me), acrylic, pigment, nylon, and this really amazing Japanese paper thread.

All That Glitters

I am so excited to be included in an upcoming show, All That Glitters, with an amazing group of very talented artists! 

Opening reception Saturday August 15th 5-8pm

A little bit about the show:

"The Arts Center will sparkle with the infinite possibilities of glass. All that Glitters, a collaborative exhibition at Petaluma Arts Center and IceHouse Gallery, will include works by members of the contemporary glass movement that began in the San Francisco Bay Area more than 50 years ago.

Curator Kathleen Hanna brings pieces by seminal figure Marvin Lipofsky, who founded the glass program in 1964 at UC Berkeley, and the generations of glass artists he inspired. Artists include Bill Burch, Elin Christopherson, Erik Eiserling, Bella Feldman, Ken & Ingrid Hanson, Evan Kolker, David Lewin, John Lewis, J. P. Long, Susan Longini, Lee Miltier, Jay Musler, Bruce Pizzichillo & Dari Gordon, Jean Salatino & Steven Gandolfo, Randy Strong, Boyd Sugiki, Pamina Traylor, Mary B. White and Lisa Zerkowitz.

In Gallery 2 at the Petaluma Arts Center, Elizabeth Shypertt, co-founder of San Francisco’s important jewelry gallery Velvet da Vinci, will curate an exhibition of contemporary works by American jewelers, including Lucia Antonelli, Brook Battles, Raissa Bump, Sandra Enterline, Don Friedlich, Tina Frey, Susie Ganch, Karen Gilbert, April Higashi, Maya Kini, Christy Klug, Deb Lozier, Sydney Lynch, Kelly Nedderman, Erica Rosenfeld, Biba Schutz, Jan Smith, and Julia Turner."

An update..

After many hours and a lot of hard work, I have made it through the two shows I had this past month.  Ten pieces were sent off to Brussels and after languishing in customs for a few stressful days, made it to Galerie Maria Clara Art Pointe just in time for the opening of "Gender, Gender".

This past weekend, I was one of 45 artists showing at Style 2014 at the Palo Alto Medical Center in Mountain View. April has been such a busy month for me, but I have felt so invigorated by the pieces I have been working on! So many new ideas. I definitely ran out of time to debut them at this particular show, but professional photos will follow. For now you can check out the images below.

Style 2014 on April 26th and 27th

If you've checked out my event section recently you might have noticed that I have a two day craft show coming up. Style 2014 will be happening in Mountain View on April 26th and 27th. You can come visit me and check out the work of dozens of other fantastic artists. The best part is that the ticket proceeds and a portion of the income from the show go to the Palo Alto Medical Foundation Women's Cancer Survivorship Program.

Tickets are on sale now! For tickets, click here.

I am super excited to have my work as one of the images featured on the card! (Top image) Hope to see you there!
