I've completely renovated my shop and every item I have photographed is up and ready to go. The store is on the Square card reader platform, so everything should be seamless, visible online and when I sell in person at an event, and make it quick to check out, especially if you've either already have a Square account or have made any purchases from a business that utilizes it (or if not, no worries, checking out in person or online will still be easy). Current items available include some larger, statement style fused glass necklaces, three of which are below.
Additionally, I submitted this series of necklaces to this year's Craftys in the jewelry category and have made it to the Finalist round. The award ceremony will be in February.
I mentioned earlier I had started a new series of 2-D works that I'm currently photographing. As I document them, I've been also been taking a few detail shots of each. I've been very happy with result and think they're an interesting way to play with finished works. Given their graphic nature, I decided to make a few of the details, what I've titled Insets, available on t-shirts, bags, and prints through my artist shop at Threadless. I'm really pleased with the results, particularly the prints and bags, so as I continue to take images, I'll make more of my new series available there since it will take me a bit to get them all up here and on social media. Even thought not all images are yet up at the shop, I wanted to announce it now for anyone possibly in need of some holiday gifts as Threadless is currently offering free shipping on $45 or more with FREESHIP671e90 until December 5th. The three works currently available through the shop are below.
Photos from my time in Japan, including the ones in the above slideshow, are now up and can be viewed either at the 'photography' listing at the top of this website or here in a gallery composed solely of those images.
After much thought, I have decided to, for a second time, return to blogging. With some big changes on the horizon for my husband and I, it seems appropriate to start documenting the odds and ends that don't quite make it into my social media doings. While intended to be a newsletter of sorts with my posts having ties to my art and creative projects, there's a good chance some random elements I find interesting will make themselves known every now and again.
Additionally, now that it seems warmer weather is here to stay ('bout time, Ohio...), my spring cleaning will include airing out my digital 'house". One of those projects is my new profile over at 500px. I'm dusting off pictures I've taken during various travels and finally getting them out to somewhere other than my hard drive. While there will be some cross over with my Instagram account, my 500px profile is intended to showcase fine art images. In other words, the majority of my cat snapshots can be found at Instagram.
A few photos that have debuted or will debut shortly:
