My solo exhibition, "Elemental Vessels," opens next week at Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts in Brattleboro, Vermont, August 18, at 5:00 - 7:00. It has been very exciting, and months of work, making pieces for this special exhibition. I hope you can join us!

In her words: I have an artist's soul. I'm the type to get out of bed at 2am to design a new concept, or spend all day working on my craft, forgetting to eat. I knit while I walk, and embroider on public transit. Making time to create is a priority every single day, even with two toddlers around. Inspiration eats me up and I wait for materials to speak to me, give me vision, before I work with them. I've been creating since bead lizards and boondoggle in third grade, and it's exciting to finally begin sharing my aesthetic with others. Your product is the peak of my creativity in this moment, and I hope it touches you as it does me.
