Hello everyone! It’s been a little while since I’ve posted, but that’s because I have been having an incredible summer of traveling! In June, I was at Penland for two weeks helping Cindy Fisher with a mosaic workshop there. Then, I headed to Chicago for a bit of a vacation with Adam, who was attending the American Library Association conference. While there, I met Gene Luen Yang, author of the graphic novel American Born Chinese, reading I wholeheartedly recommend. I had one short week at home and now I have arrived at Arrowmont for a six week stint as a Studio Assistant. For those of you who don’t know, I did that last summer too and loved it! The atmosphere at Arrowmont is so supportive and creative, it feels wonderful to be back.

I’m hoping sometime while I’m here to post some photos of my travels and of some of the work I’ll be making while I’m here. I’m thrilled to be taking classes from Kathy King, Jenny Mendes and Sunshine Cobb while here. And all in a row, no less! It will be a three week clay intensive, but I think I’m ready!!

Finally, you may notice that the annoying popup from my web host is no longer an issue. I have my wonderfully talented webmaster/designer/super friend extraordinaire Kate to thank for that. THANK YOU KATE! You’re the best!!
