We have been collaborating artists our entire married lives. Our work is always evolving. The experiences we share, or individually participate in, become a part of what we create. Bruce photographs and throws pots and I paint and create jewelry and other objects from precious metals. Bruce's photos are sometimes the inspiration or reference for my paintings and often times I sculpt and carve into his pottery. The results from our combined knowledge and skills becomes something beautiful that we enjoy sharing. Enjoy.

Its been a while since I picked up my brush and for no good reason except that I was emotionally spent with another part of my life. It felt good to lose myself once more in the canvas. This image
actually came from a friends Bed and Breakfast (see earlier post). While touring his beautiful Victorian home I spotted this row of quince on his kitchen sill. He quickly took the picture for me
and sent it for me to use. I'm happy with this piece although I know its not my strongest but it represents a coming home party in my head!!!

B and B Tour and Artisan Faire in Rome New York

What a great place. Can't wait to set up in this warm and cozy space. We're not usually interested in
doing faires but this year we've done both the South Trenton Falls and now this venue. I'm really excited to be a part of local activities and will post pictures of Fred's Italian Victorian B and B.
   Artisans include,  a weaver, sculptors, fiber artists, jewelers, potter, painters and much more.
Please come out and support a local business and in the process you may find the perfect place to celebrate someone's special day with a summer luncheon in the gardens or even a reception.  See you there!

Ock Hee Gallery Show

It's a lovely little gallery in Honeoye Falls, outside of Rochester, New York.
Ock Hee is a lovely woman with a very keen sense for beauty and spirit.
I met her through friends who live nearby and I knew this would be a gallery I could
call home for my work. I feel honored to have been selected for this show and can't
wait to see how she puts it all together.
