March 2020

This month everything has changed.. or nothing has changed.

Trying new media and new materials- silver and gold jewellery at studiokw, tapestry weaving at Button Factory Arts, entering a shodo competition, making sculptures with wire and washi at The JPP before the Pandemic.. working from home now I have more time to work on projects. Trying out lino tiles, Kuretake watercolours from Japan on Usukuchi washi from The Japanese Paper Place, painting a watercolour feeling of hope.

Looking forward to The Art District Gallery‘s new On-line Exhibit THIRTEEN launching April 1st!
