  • September 30, 2017 – January 14, 2018: I will be participating in the New Members Exhibition at the Folk Art Center.

I am so proud to be a member of this organization, and I am planning some special pieces for this exhibit, so don’t miss it!

I will be demonstrating from 10am – 6pm both days, showing some painting techniques, and the process each piece goes through start to finish. You can also learn about the history of the Guild, it’s Education Members, and how to become a member yourself! Not to mention seeing one of the best selections of fine craft in the country!
  • Friday and Saturday, December 8 & 9, 2017: I am so excited to be participating in the first annual A Crafty Christmas this December at the Hickory Convention Center in Hickory, North Carolina!
