Workshops & Presentations

I am available for presentations and workshops. I have an English degree, a teaching degree, and a Masters in Library Science, so lesson plans and presentations (I love doing digital) are no problem–in fact, they are a joy to do!

I am an enthusiastic presenter, and especially enjoy introducing people who think they are NOT creative to their artistic side. Of course, I also relish exchanging notes and techniques with seasoned artists!

Art is a spiritual practice for me, one that brings adventure and revelation into my life. I approach it with a sense of wonder and curiosity. “Fun” is the operative word.

I look forward to hearing from you about leading an art experience in your area! Reach me at:

Presentations:

Presentation 1: FROM SILVERSPRING STUDIO to QUILTING ARTS

I talk about Silverspring Studio (my blog)  ~ how it came to be, how it helped me to evolve as an artist, how my blog presence developed and prompted a connection with Quilting Arts Magazine.

Presentation 2: THE CRACKED PAPER QUILT PROCESS

This process continues to excite my creativity, and I keep thinking of new ways to expand its use.
