New Book, TV and More Exciting News!

In the past month and a half I have been diligently working on a new book due out next year that will be published by North Light Books. I am extremely excited to be able to share fun projects and ideas with everyone. I'll keep you posted as to when it will be out!

On Friday, May 9th, KC Cowan, Tom and Bill from OPB came to Sisters to interview me for their show, Oregon Artbeat for television. As you can imagine, the days leading up were nutty...lots of cleaning, painting walls, making pillows. I restrained myself from ripping out carpet. These three individuals were so much fun to be with and made me feel very comfortable. They filmed me shopping at my favorite fabric store, The Stitchin' Post here in Sisters and then here at my studio and house. I've never had a tv experience so it was interesting to see the process. They have a wonderful program and I recommend checking out some videos on Oregon Artbeat on the their website, opb.org. There are many talented artists out there making incredible and beautiful work.

Here is an image of my latest work, "Be the Light." It is a small preview, but a better image will be on my website within the next week. I'm proud of this piece as it is my largest Telamadera Fusion to date and managed to keep all the layers (six!) flat!

More exciting news...I created a line of rubber stamps of several of my images. You will be able to order them directly from my website. I'm working on samples for you all to see very soon.

Well, lots of news lately. It is wonderful having this to share with you. Thank you for visiting my blog. May your creative path be filled with inspired action and beauty.

I can't hear enough about all you are doing to inspire - me, others, everyone around you: If it is only for a smile that I get when I see your work, or a warmth I feel when I take in the color and strength of your art.

For all others out there: I get first dibbs on the stamps! :)
