Check out the Sept/Oct 2017 issue of Cloth Paper Scissors for my new step-by-step encaustic collage tutorial! If you've ever wanted to wax poetic, the entire issue is devoted to different encaustic projects including setting up an encaustic studio, sgraffito, stenciling and much more! It's a great issue to get started, and I'm thrilled to be the "Cover Girl."  

Book Release & Mini Workshop at Malaprops Bookstore August 13th!

Join me in downtown Asheville at Malaprops bookstore at 3 pm on August 13th as I unveil my new book, Storytelling Art Studio & lead a mini workshop in the cafĂ©!  As many of you know, I was an English teacher before becoming a full-time artist, and in this book I show you how to use elements of creative writing & fiction to add deep meaning to your mixed media art projects. In the book, I share ways to convey character, setting, mood, theme, conflict, symbolism --  and even plot -- in visual art. On Sunday the 13th, I'll lead you through a fun, empowering mini-workshop where we alter a book page from a faerie tale! Everyone will receive a surprise goodie bag to create their mini masterpiece, and I will be signing copies of my book!

You can RSVP and learn more HERE.
