I am happy to announce that you can now find my work at, Colorado Expressions, a new gallery in downtown Colorado Springs.  Yes that’s me in front of the gallery.  Dan took some great pictures yesterday and I’m happy to share them with you.  He says he is my personal photographer now!  How wonderful is that?

This beautiful gallery is owned by Christine Pech and her daughter, Heather Dalbec.  Check out their Facebook page for more details and photos from their opening reception.  I met with Christine, who is such a sweet person and loves art of all forms.  She gave Dan & me a tour of the gallery, discussing all the wonderful artists that have become a part of it.  This is a dream come true for Christine and you can tell.  Several of my friends, Mattie O and Margarete Seagraves, are displaying their works there as well.

As you can see, there are some beautiful pieces of stained glass, woodworks and oil paintings.  The Christmas tree is decorated with blown glass ornaments that I love.  Christine has an etched glass artists that has created some of the prettiest etched pieces I think I have ever seen.


The wood table/fountain is breathtaking!


I love this staircase.  It really does invite one to come upstairs and explore all the works up there.


I’m talking with Donna K, one of the other jewelry artists.  We are discussing the possibility of a some collaborations, which I think could be great fun and result in some really nice works.


Me again in front of that beautiful staircase.  Thank you Dan for taking all these great photos!


I’m enjoying Donna K’s works.


There are several of these chandeliers in the space.  Works of arts in themselves.  Isn’t it spectacular?

For those of you who live in the area, this is a must see!  There are so many treasures in this great space.  And for those of you who haven’t finished your holiday shopping yet, well, I’m certain you can find the perfect gift at Colorado Expressions.  If you are visiting Colorado Springs, please make this a stop during your visit.  I promise you won’t be disappointed.  I am delighted to be a part of Colorado Expressions!

It feels like so many doors are opening for me and my life is so blest.

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

This will be my last show of 2012.  Once again my friend Nancy Bonig is opening her home for a unique holiday shopping experience.  I am grateful to be one of the six Front Range Open Studio Artists participating.  This e-Invite has been sent to those who are signed up for our respective newsletters.  I thought it would be nice to include all of you who subscribe to my blog posts too.  Any of you that may live in Monument CO and/or the surrounding areas are welcome, as this isn’t an event that will be publicized to the general community.

One of the great things about this weekend event is that Nancy has created a very festive and relax atmosphere for people to shop, talk with us and enjoy art.  Her home is beautifully decorated for the holidays and filled with lovely yuletide music.  We will be providing plenty of munchies, mulled wine, eggnog, cider….well you get the idea….good food and drink!  Oh yes, and last but certainly not least, we are offering some of the most unique, one of a kind, handcrafted art works you will ever find for this season’s gift giving.

My thanks to everyone who came and purchased Treescape pendants and earrings at my trunk show yesterday at Santa Fe Trail Jewelry.  It was so good to see everyone, discuss my process and talk about all the beautiful artwork Marylee has in her shop.  I had a wonderful day and you have my gratitude for liking my work enough to give it as gifts this year.

For those who didn’t have a chance to come to the trunk show, next weekend is another opportunity to see if my Treescapes works will find their way into a stocking hung with care or a present under the tree!  The earrings shown above are just a few hot off my bench.  I’ve been adding rough cut sapphires and more facetted stones.  The pair at the top left of this photo collage has 2mm facetted citrine tube sets; I wear the best magnifiers I have so I can see what I’m doing….those stones may be small, but they add that sparkle that flashes in the light when you wear them.  From start to finish, each pair has at least 10 and as many as 15 steps in the process to complete the work.

Whether you survived the frenzy of Black Friday and the upcoming Cyber Monday, I can assure you that coming to Nancy’s to shop will be a true slice of heaven.  I hope to see you there.

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