OCAG Fall 2017 Open Studio Tour Nov

My studio (#42) will be open on BOTH of the first two weekends of November for the OCAG Open Studio Tour. Again, Savannah Scarborough will be sharing my studio space with her beautiful pottery.

November 4th-5th & 11th-12th
10am to 5pm on the Saturdays, Noon to 5pm on the Sundays

New work large & small!
I am doing something a little different this year. In addition to larger encaustic, cold wax and mixed media works – I have an abundance of new, smaller framed pieces priced for holiday giving ($75-150.) I also have a numbered, limited edition of 10 giclee prints each of three favorite images, including “Durham Bull with the Pretty Eyes.” They are beautifully printed on cotton ragstock, fully archival and ready for framing in standard 16×20 frames.
