We’re getting ready to travel to Ohio and see family and friends as well as do some art and music. I’ve got three classes (etching metal bracelets, patina on metal and kumihimo) lined up at Gahanna Bead Studio at 1082 N. Hamilton Rd. Gahanna, Ohio. I grew up in Gahanna, and it is always a […]

Metal Etching Class

I’m teaching a class on how to etch metal with electricity April 11, from 2pm-4:30 pm.

To help prepare for it, I’ve also put up a page about using Photoshop and PnP paper as well as other resists for use on metal in etching (or anodizing) for use by students.

Join me for some etching […]

Spring Bonnets and Eggs

I do enjoy decorating eggs with polymer clay. These blooming beauties were first blown free of their egg-y contents, then coated with several cured coats of liquid polymer clay.I drew the faces with a Micron permanent ink pen, colored them with acrylic paints and gathered the bits and pieces for their hats.

Then came the […]

Knit Knack

I started with a scarf with just knitting, then on to practicing knit and purl stitch combos. The white piece may turn into a sampler wall […]

Things we’ve been working towards all summer are showing results, and it’s great […]

Oh, Hi O

We’re going back to Ohio to enjoy some of Springtime with family and friends there, and to do a trunk show and metal etching class at Gahanna Bead Studio. We’re getting back to some things and forwards to others; life is more of a spiral than a circle! I’ve finished up my own student-hood for […]

New Beads and Beauties

All the activity at the Kay Carol and Priscila Gallery and Working Art Studio has been keeping me hopping like the proverbial Easter Bunny. So far this year (and its only just the end of March!) we’ve had the several featured artists, cleaned and painted the gallery in preparation for more, hosted musical events and […]

The year 2013 is coming to a close, as is the last semester in my degree program at Front Range Community College. My Media Graphic Design degree is within reach, and I have enjoyed all the art classes there so much that I’m going to continue to take a few here and there as I […]
