Flora, Fauna and Fascination Exhibit

While I don’t have any pop ups in October, I am still part of the ongoing Flora, Fauna and Fascination exhibit. Ice House Gallery owner Hannah Litvan curated a beautiful array of artists who each have their own unique artistic expression of nature themes. The opening night was packed, and I was thrilled to see […]

Halloweenies at Artem Pop Up Gallery

It is October, and that means all the Halloween decorations are coming out. I gathered up all my stakes and most of my Halloween pendants and brought them in to Artem Pop Up Gallery last week. It is fun to change my shelf a bit and have fun with my pieces. I am not the […]

$10,000 Raised By Nasty Women

Wow, the last weekend of September was amazing. Numerous people converged upon 1100 Florence for the Nasty Women Evanston Fundraiser on September 28.

A Beehive for Ice House Gallery

Artists who work with encaustics are naturally bee lovers as well, and I have often toyed with the idea of a beehive. My friend Bridgette Guerzon Mills made a gorgeous hive for an outdoor art installation, which I find very inspiring. I started making bees last year and really enjoy the design I came up with. […]
