Create With me

 

Creating with me

Spring has come and gone here in the Pacific Northwest, and now we are deep in the midst of summer. After a very hot spell,  trees are already shedding a few yellow leaves, they sprinkle them on the grass and seem ready for the Autumn rains and cooler nights.

Late in May I taught a beautiful workshop with Tonia Jenny, here at River Garden Studio called  Archetypal Expressions. This photograph was taken in the garden under our Maple Trees in late May.

For two days we worked and played outside learning and creating symbols that were meaningful in our life. We worked with cement, wood and paper writing, drawing, carving and printing.

Last weekend I taught two workshops in Arizona at Art Unraveled.

My first workshop was called The Alchemist's Book of Treasures and my student's work was thoughtful and creative! I love teaching this workshop because of the stories each creation tells.

These are some of the books made by my students in A Book of Trees, one of my favorite workshops and subjects! My students were lovely, so creative, and I love the way we all bonded from the very first moments, trusting, laughing, sharing and joyfully creating.

Now I am happily nestled at home, moving from studio to garden and enjoying my world... there is time for everything again.
