Open Studio

This year, I have invited my neighbors and colleagues to join for the first annual 
Greater Westover Studio Tour

As always, my open studio will feature examples of my work from the past 6 years, including brand new and in-progress pieces.  Artwork at a wide range of price points will be for sale,
and 20% of sales will be donated to Arlington Food Assistant Center.
The open house will be in my home/studio,
less than a block east of the Historic Westover Village shops.

Jeweled Traditions in progress

Drawing inspiration from summer's Art Trekkers class  at Arlington Arts Center,
Jeweled Traditions has been made possible through an Arlington Spotlight Grant. 
The papercut and Plexi installation  debuted at AAC
and continued, reconfigured, to Arlington Central Library.

This program is supported in part by Arlington County through the
Arlington Cultural Affairs division of Arlington Economic Development
and the Arlington Commission for the Arts.
