A project near and dear to my heart

Over the last few months I have been rather neglectful of my blog and website. Why? Because i've been working on a whole other website! As some of you may know, I am the current president of the Metal Arts Guild. The organization is an all volunteer led non profit with the goal of increasing awareness of our field and promoting the work of our members through various opportunities and education. 

In honor of MAG’s 65th birthday, our website and newsletter got a makeover. We are really excited to see the completion of this phase of the project. Our goal with this new site lis to create a community hub for our field. Bringing a ton of information, great resources, and highlighting the wide variety of metalsmiths and makers working in the Bay Area.

I am thankful to all who have had a hand in bringing this idea to fruition. Our outstanding web designer Christine Craven of Grey Graphic has done a wonderful job bringing our vision to life. I sincerely hope that you’ll check it out!

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.
