Something to smile about

Teaching is one of my passions, and one-on-one/small group tutoring is just the best. I get a chance to work closely with students, providing guidance and support, while watching art unfold right before my eyes. I had the pleasure of doing a recent session with two lovely sisters. I did a basic introductory lesson for one sister while guiding the other sister through the creation of a pet portrait. The portrait features the beloved, departed beagle of her close friend: once the portrait is complete, she'll sew the fabric into a bag. I am just in awe at this studen'ts progress over the course of a couple of hours. Well done, Michele!

This was what she accomplished during our tutoring session. Can't wait to see the finished work!

Makers' Market next weekend

Here are examples of my new series of tactile vessels that will debut at the Makers' Market next weekend in Whittier neighborhood. They will be shown alongside the works of several other artists- metalworkers, jewelry artists, glassworkers, and more- in George Wurtzel's Furniture Design Studio June 8th and 9th at 2613 Stevens Ave. S. Minneapolis. George is a blind furniture maker who creates stunning work and has invited other artists to display in his space. This show is meant to be "touch friendly" to cater to art enthusiasts with low/no vision. I'm excited to be a part of it! Special thanks to my mom, Sandie Pierce, for creating the vessels that I then needle felting to add textured design elements.
