My 2017 Sammamish Arts Fair Video

Those of us participating in the Sammamish Arts Fair 2017 (held on September 23rd and 24th from 10am-5pm in the Sammamish City Hall), were asked to create a short video about ourselves.

I did make a video - but I did it without help and on my cellphone (so let's just say the quality could be better! lol!!).  I've added the video via my Youtube channel where I've posted it (as it is apparently too big to post directly to Blogger).

Enjoy!

Sammamish Arts Fair 2017 Is Arriving Soon!

Hello!  I'm guessing that I've been so busy that I've forgotten to announce that I am going to be a part of the 2017 Sammamish Arts Fair which is being held on September 23rd & 24th 2017 (and yes, looking back through my posts, I see that I did indeed overlook posting about this). 











As you can imagine, I am busy creating art to show and sell, plus I'm trying to figure out how I want to display my art in the space I'll have.  

The Sammamish Arts Fair will be open on both days from 10am to 5pm.  It is being held in the lovely space that is the Sammamish City Hall (801 228th Ave. SE, Sammamish, WA 98075).  

As in the past years, there will be a variety of fine artworks including sculpture, wall art, jewelry, and even some wearable art pieces.  
It is an honor to be selected to participate with this wonderful group of artists!


I will be showing both wall art pieces (in the form of paintings upon reclaimed silks) and 3-D sculptural pieces (using the Re-FEM process which I…

Upcoming Workshop - Resisting Your Dyes, At The Schack Art Center

Have you thought about learning Shibori/Tie-dye techniques but haven't wanted to invest in the supplies? 

I am offering a Resisting Your Dyes workshop at the Schack Art Center in Everett on Saturday, August 12th from 11am-3pm. It's a great opportunity to play with the techniques and dyes!  




Attendees will learn: A variety of Shibori/Tye-dying techniques. A few of the techniques include: twisting and tying up fabric using string resists, use various clamps as resists, placing beans/marbles/rocks or other materials into fabric and tying fabric around them to create resists. If time, they can practice sewn-in resists using needles and thread. Attendees will be making Shibori and Tye-dye samples to take home.   If they wish, they can bring a shirt or two to dye as well! 

Students will need to bring:
At least 4 (no more than 8) pieces of natural-fiber fabric (100% natural fibers are best!). Any natural fiber fabric will do. For example: buy a cotton sheet at a thrift store and cut it i…
