The Open Studios in April was wonderful, with over 100 guests visiting my studio. It was a pleasure to see so many new faces and share my techniques and processes with so many of you.
Here are some of the things Ill be involved with over the summer months. I hope to see you at an upcoming event and I hope youll make a point to come out to support the Arts this summer.
