Kenilworth Artists  Studio Stroll ~ May 27 & 28 ~ 10am -5pm

I am once again, participating in a studio stroll in the Kenilworth neighborhood of Asheville, NC.  There is great information on the 19 artists participating in this years tour at this link: kenilworthartists.org, along with a map of the studios to visit.

My sheep family was inspired by the mountains I now live with, wrapping around us at every turn.  This  latest work will be on view along with a number of other new pieces for the studio stroll.




A few more samples of what you will find on Buckingham Court! Hope to see you there!

My piece is a mixed media,  done with original collage paper on a ink and gesso background. Two techniques swimming together…  Thanks to Conny (Piarom) for the inspiring challenge !
