2016 was a different kind of year and this year I need to shake things up a bit. First of all, I am no longer a staff member at the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen…I am a Board Member!

Secondly, I am not planning on doing any craft shows at this time. This doesn’t mean I won’t, just that for now I am focusing on different things.

Now onto 2017 events!

The 9th Super Bowl Challenge is February 5th! Start getting your ideas in order and get ready to make something by that day.

For the next show at JAM Gallery I will have jewelry. It is up through the end of February 2017.

I am proud to announce that I will be in a two woman show next Spring with Kim Banister at the Carlisle Arts & Learning Center in Carlisle, PA. More details soon!

***Update*** The CALC show is actually in 2018


Lancaster First Friday Artist Demos in July

Took this awesome action shot and then realized I'm wearing the same shirt as my avatar. I really do own other shirts!
Sure, this isn’t foldforming, but it is me with a hammer!

You’ve seen still images here on Hammermarks of me working. Now you can see the actual me working on my metalwork. That is, if you are in Lancaster, PA next Friday July 1st. I will be demonstrating foldforming while Amy Burk will be hand-building clay trays, Brian Cunfer will be woodturning, Kathleen Cunfer will be gelli plate printing, and Lisa Gallagher will be making jewelry. Join us from 6-9pm at the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen‘s Center of American Craft at 335 N. Queen St.

ACC Baltimore 2016

Has it been a year already? Once again I will be a special SNAG Invitational Artist at the American Craft Council Show in Baltimore. I’ll have almost all of my holloware, sculptures, and wall pieces at BOOTH #825 for you to see, talk with me about, and of course buy and take home with you!


Feb. 19–21 at the Baltimore Convention Center

Look at my pretty new booth set-up! I got compliments on this as well as my art!
Last year’s ACC Booth. This year stop by BOOTH #875

Join us for three days of festivities celebrating all things handmade! More than 650 top contemporary jewelry, clothing, furniture, and home décor artists from across the country will gather under one roof. It’s your chance to touch, feel, and explore high-quality American craft and meet the makers behind the fabulous work. This is the American Craft Council’s flagship show – a must-attend for craft lovers.

Plus, meet the country’s top emerging artists! Stop by our Hip Pop pods dotting the show floor to see their contemporary pieces, ranging from sophisticated elegance to cutting edge. Look for the pink and black Hip Pop logo to locate these fresh finds.
