Hello Friend,

Greetings from my Kansas City studio!

Summer is slowly fading, where the days still carry the warmth of the season but the evenings hint at the approaching cooler weather. The dried up leaves are falling, but it’s still a good time to sit outside at night without a sweater. I’m debating whether or not I should cut down some bushes, but it’s been so busy, I might just leave it all up until Spring.

Long days in the studio and a spike in creativity certainly helped me through this long stretch of hot and humid summer days. It’s hard to believe that the cooler season is upon us – and I only know this because I have some Holiday Exhibition Dates to announce. I also have some New Items in my Shop. Here we go!
