In this class you will learn the basics of silk painting, all the materials you will need to make beautiful pieces of art. You will learn techniques beyond the basics also. All of the supplies are provided. All you have to do is come and have fun and learn something new! Students will learn the "Serti" technique and all materials used are water-based and non-toxic.
 Here I am demonstrating the silk painting on October 7th at the ART Mob Open House during Hendersonville's Art on Main. Classes are to be held at ART Mob - 124 4th Avenue East, Hendersonville. Plus many other classes are being offered.

I have always loved B.B. Barns and when they moved out into my area I was constantly in the store either browsing, purchasing or for just plain old inspiration. The store is beautiful and offers so much for people that love gardening and gifts. Well after years of wanting my work in the store, I finally did it! B.B. Barns in now carrying my note cards and Holiday handmade ornaments!

My Holiday handmade ornaments will also be at Grovewood Gallery at the Grove Park Inn again this year!

New and exciting things.......

I haven't been here in a while and I have a lot to talk about! The first thing is the opening of Hendersonville's newest art marketplace!
Located at 124 4th Ave. East in Hendersonville, right off of Main St., Michelle and Rod Sparks are the owners and they opened on August 30th. With a variety of artists from all over ART MoB is unique to the Hendersonville area. They offer consignment of Fine Art on the Gallery side, booth rentals and studio space. Here's my booth!

And even more exciting - they are going to be having art instruction, classes, and workshops available to all!

It's May!

Well here it is May and I am just now coming back to my Blog. I know I should be in here more often than I am but life gets hectic... I just listed some canvas mini totes featuring my artwork, the totes have my original art reproductions transferred onto them. Cute! They are on my Etsy site:

I hope this year I can make more time and delve back into the watercolors and possibly revisit the Art Licensing world.

Well here it is another year! But new things are on the horizon and I am going to commit a little more time to this blog! Hopefully.
I have some new things on Etsy. I have renamed both of my sites:

The other site is:
I've been adding original art, art transfers on fabric, and mixed media pieces.
