Victorian Journal

Here are some pictures of a journal I am working on.  I took a class with Kim Geiser and the book I used was too thick and the pages too thin, so I took it apart and redid it.  It was given at Art-Is-You and I added all my trades to the side of the book.   I am adding lots more stuff, the only problem is that the book will not close, but I will be tying it with ribbon and can do that loosely.
I still have a long way to go but I am glad I started my Journal Journey.







The Art Of Steampunk

Here I am standing next to my piece that is now in the Gallery.  It is on it's own wall!  This is just
a preview.  The closing reception takes place January 4 and hopefully someone will buy it.  I didn't win any ribbons but hey, at least I got into a Gallery.  Hope you enjoy!

Hi everyone,

Here I am again with some exciting news.   It has been a while since I blogged since I have
been so busy making art.

First, I will be having a piece shown in the Art League Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery.
It is a piece of all my handmade jewelry that I put together into one big collage.  I am very
excited about this as it is a large gallery and I attend classes there as well.  This is a juried
show and there will be ribbons given out and an opening reception and a closing reception.


















Second, The Half Hollow Hills Library in Dix Hills has agreed to let    me put all my pieces in
their gallery.  It is downstairs and I have the whole area to myself.  I am very busy making
collages to hang there as well.  Here is one picture that is going in the library as well as others I am presently working on.























I will post pictures of the others as I make them.


The most exciting thing that can ever happen to me is I applied for a one-artist show at the Huntington Arts Council Gallery in Huntington, NY.  I will know after April 2015 if they
accept me and if they do, it will run for two weeks.  There will be an opening reception and a
closing reception.

I was just notified that a piece I donated to the HAC for a silent auction has been sold~!
I couldn't be more happier as it went to charity and for a good cause.
