#ARTifacts: April 2017

Artifacts (plural noun): objects made by a human being, typically an item of cultural or historical interest.

ARTifacts (plural noun): a collaborative project for 2017 documenting adventures in art.

Every year I have so many "art memories" from my travels, my teaching, my adventures in NYC, and my studio work. I have decided that 2017 will be the year of ARTifacts where I document my adventures in art for the entire year in a physical book. Always wanting to be inclusive, I turned my project into a no-rules collaboration.

Participants were asked to find or make some sort of artist book, planner, scrapbook, 3-ring-binder, folder, or other container to document their creative experiences, whether they be in art, craft, or anything else.  As you can see below, each and every participant put their own creative twist on this project. And it is never too late to join. Email me at if you would like to participate.

Make it Your Own: 16

I always find it exciting when I come across artwork online that incorporates my product lines. Seeing how different people use these items in such creative ways is always inspiring. I love the wide variety of styles and unique choices. Click each link below for more details on each and click here to see other posts in this series.

How to Get Creative

Earlier this month I was a guest on Creative Chat with Barb Owen, the brains behind the site How to Get Creative. Barb interviewed me and we spoke about my (lack of) interest in art growing up, my current inspirations, my five favorite art supplies, True Colors (the book that started it all), the impact of NYC on my art, and so much more. Barbara also demonstrated some of my techniques on the video after the interview was complete. It's a long one but you can check it out below...

ArtJam 2017

I am thrilled to be an exhibiting artist at ArtJam 2017 running from May 19 to June 6 in Princeton, New Jersey. This 7th annual art exhibit and sale brings together established and emerging artists with clients (all of whom have experienced homelessness) from HomeFront NJ, an organization focused on ending homelessness in the central New Jersey region.

50% of all sales go directly to Artspace, the studio space in HomeFront's Family Preservation Center, dedicated to an innovative therapeutic art program.

Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing any of the pieces I am exhibiting and supporting an important cause at the same time.
