Festival Season

The Fall Season is about to begin, and I am excited to share my new line of silk scarves and wall hangings, as well as my new cotton printed Happi Coats and Kimonos! It was fun participating in the recent Art Presence showing and sale in Jacksonville, and I have many events planned to follow. My next and upcoming event is the Jacksonville Celebrates the Arts, which will be held right on Labor Day Weekend. This will be the second time that I’ve participated in this event, with the added interest of the silk scarves and wall hangings. I am also going to participate for the first time in Kerby, at the Artoberfest showing and sale in October.  I am going to have a demonstration of my silk painting as well. These events are listed on my website, with a maps, times and dates. Hope to see you there!
