purpleleaf Fashion Show in the Barn

Date ~~  TBD

Time ~~ TBD

Location:  Wild Hair Alpacas, 5815 Mountain Shadow View,
                    Colorado Springs, CO 80908

Barb Ziek and I will be collaborating again on this fun fashion show in the alpaca barn. Last year the young alpaca boys watched with great interest when certain girls strutted their stuff alongside the model wearing a garment made with their fiber.

Great care is taken in selecting the pairing of my art jewelry with one of Barb’s fiber art wear.

Newborn alpacas can be seen. It’s wonderful to hear the tranquil trilling of the alpacas.

Join us for this fun, whimsical experience.

purpleleaf Front Range Open Studios Tour

Dates ~~  September 9 – 10, 2017   

Times ~~  10:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Location:  My Personal Studio

This is my seventh year as part of  the Front Range Open Studios Tour.  That’s right! Lucky Number 7. I take great pride knowing that I have been with this tour since its inception and my work allows me to represent the local artist community.

All of the artists on this tour open their studio spaces to the public in this once a year event.  My focus will be demonstrating the time honored tradition of Chasing and Repousse.  I will also have a video running of me completing a piece, in addition to the demos I will present in my studio.  Last year many who visited my studio found this not only educational, but fascinating.

It’s a wonderful opportunity to learn about art and witness what goes into each artist’s process.  Please join us.
