Express Yourself

Being able to express my individuality has been very important to me ever since I came of age in high school.  For some it was the best time of their lives, for others it was a trying time and for people like me it was the start of a very personal journey of self-discovery.  I started to learn the importance of  being an individual.  Being a lemming and following the crowd wasn’t something I sought.  What I learned to embrace was being the person I was meant to be.

At that time, I expressed myself with the clothes I made.  Unique.  No one else had anything like something I had made.

Today, the same holds true for people who express themselves with their sense of style.  A favorite pair of shoes.  That eclectic blouse or dress that says I have the confidence to wear something this classic.  So it holds true for those who wear art jewelry.  It makes a statement, sometimes bold, sometimes subtle, about the individual who wears it.

It is my hope that my new series of Express Yourself, with a little touch of Colorado, will provide the wearer that statement of individual style, grace and poise.  The series is currently available at Santa Fe Trail Jewelry in Monument CO.

Until next time, aspire to be more as an artist and a person.

Isn’t it funny how something as simple as a little red dot can bring joy and affirmation to an artist?  The little indicator that your work has sold.  Thanks to my good friend and fellow artist, Nancy Tanner-Bonig, I have this photograph of a little red dot showing that one of my Treescapes (The Journey) sold during the Art of the State Exhibit at Arvada, CO.  Nancy caught the show on its final weekend.

Yesterday, I got a note from the show director saying another pendant sold!  You see, after last weekend, the show was taken down and items were being prepared to be shipped back to the artists.  Apparently, a gentleman called and said he was interested in one of my pendents he had seen over the weekend.  Sure enough, he bought Reaching for the Sky!

I am so grateful that two of my three pendants in this exhibit have found their way to their homes.  Still Standing (in the upper right of Nancy’s photo & shown below) will be returning to me…..and will seek its owner someday in the future.

My thanks to Nancy for taking the photo showing that little red dot.  They sure do make us artists smile.  And thanks to Arvada Center for a wonderful exhibition of so many talented Colorado artists.  A final thanks to the buyers/collectors of my work.  Your purchases affirm what I am doing and I will continue to strive to create wearable works of art.

Until next time, aspire to be more as an artist and a person.
