May Update

Hello everyone-

First of all, a big thank you to everyone who, supported, stopped by and sent good thoughts to my show at Minas Boutique and Gallery.  The show went really well and I had a blast at the opening.  A special thanks goes to my Dad who surprised me by bringing most of my aunts, uncles AND my grandmother who is 96. 

I will be updating my online shop soon.  The goal is to have it done before I leave for vacation on the 20th, but we'll see....

Some upcoming art related events:

May 17th (that's right this Sunday!!)  Mickey and I will be attending the Tour de Vine MS Fundraiser at The Parkside Fine Foods and Spirits (  I will be donating two prints for their silient auction, so if you are in the area come on by!  There's no cover for the event and ALL proceeds will be donated on behalf of Team S’Myelin Peddlers to the National MS Society and Johns Hopkins Project Restore.  The flyer should come to you along with the email.

May 29th Fifth(?) Annual Pin Projekt Auction in Durham, NC. The auction benefits the Troika Music Festival.  This auction is always fun and as usual I had a great time creating my pin.  For pictures of the finished piece and the process photos visit the NEWS section on my site.  This year's auction will be held at Pinhook (, it starts at 6:30 and there is a five dollar cover.

Sadly, this year I will not be there but if you are in the area swing by and bid on my pin!

Beard News

For those who are interested in Mickey's beard growing endeavours-  We are leaving for Anchorage, Alaska on May 20th to attend the World Beard and Mustache Championships.  I will try to update my blog (better known as the NEWS section on my site) everyday so that everyone can follow along with our adventure.  The direct link is here:   For those of you who are also my friends on Facebook, the blog should update there automatically.

I hope everyone is having an amazing spring and I'm looking forward to a pleasant and productive summer.
