Fresh Air & Creative Freedom: A Fall Day at my Studio, Sunday, October 8th, 2023
Join me Sunday, October 8th 2023 for a full day workshop at my studio, 949a Mirror Lake Road, Yardley, PA, 10a to 5p
On the edge of a colorful & crisp fall season, we will gather outside in the fresh air with playful creativity & mixed media.
I will share with you all my summer art discoveries (July/ August is my play time to learn and explore ideas and techniques in my studio).
With a strong emphasis on process and intuition, we dig deeply into both mixed media layers as well as our own inner layers to bring what is inside us onto our art journal pages.
We will be using photo transfer techniques, thread, paint, paper, cyanotypes, gel mediums and ephemera mixed in as bits and pieces of the past to tell our story of where our heart is right now.
There will be plenty of work areas set up outside so we can safely explore & experiment on altered journal pages. A delicious and healthy studio lunch is included.
Note: these amazing pictures come from my eye and the eye of these talented artists & photographers: Cindy Fatsis, Elizabeth Wade, Dalis Davidson. xo

These questions sometimes arise...
What unit of measure do you use?
All product measurements are listed in inches.
What is the "small word add-on?"
The small word add-on allows you to add an additional small (6-8") cardboard or plastic word to your order. The small word will be the same as your large word.
How do I hang the salvaged words?
I use the little foam squares from AC Moore or similar craft stores. They fit perfectly behind the words and also add a great dimension. They do not harm paint. In my studio I have some that have been up for years.
I also love to lean the words...over a doorway, a window, or on top of a picture. The dinner table is a favorite place of mine. I use clear squares if I hang the words on a mirror.
Can salvaged words be outside?
The salvaged plexi words can, yes! And they float in water. The last little words are salvaged cardboard and should be kept indoors.
I want a word I do not see on your website. Can you make it for me?
Oh yes. You can order that right here.
I have a phrase I would like made. Can you do that?
Happily. Just email me directly.
When will I receive my order?
Prints will ship out in 1 to 2 business days. Hand-scripted words ship within a week. Custom orders (e.g., Your Word and Your Name) will be processed in 1 - 3 weeks.
Shipping rates and times are based on package weight and destination...you'll be able to view and select the best option for your purchase at checkout.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes...a whole bunch. Please expect delivery to take longer than noted above as packages will be making their way across mountains, sand, or sea.
What about refunds and exchanges?
If an order arrived damaged due to shipping, please contact me.
Where can I see/buy your work in person?
You’ll find my environmentally friendly artwork in healing spaces and private collections across North America and Europe, as well as in galleries and shops in the Northeast United States. Take a peek at my portfolio, browse the shop, join me at an event, and share in my creative process.
I'd love to carry your work...
If you are interested in placing a wholesale order, please reach out to me for pricing and minimums.
I still have a question...
Please contact me with any questions, concerns or general delight.
