Unfolding and Going Forward: art journaling on the edge of summer at my Studio, Monday, June 20th, 2022
Join me Monday, June 20th, 2022 for a full day workshop at my studio, 949a Mirror Lake Road, Yardley, PA, 10a to 5p
Summer is calling and we are half way through the year. We will pause and look over the past six months and create a visual art journal to go forward into the last half of the year. We will gather outside in the fresh air and play with paper, thread, cyanotypes, photo transfers and mixed media art journaling.
I will share with you all my winter art discoveries and the process that feeds my writing and art & is part of my everyday. It delights me, supports me and has put me back together at so many different times in my life.
We will be using photo transfer techniques, thread, paint, paper, gel mediums mixed in 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 packaged studio lunch of a healthy salad and a side is included. ps. we will be one day away from summer!

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...

I still have a question...
Please contact me with any questions, concerns or general delight.
