the art nest
its up!! the art nest website designed by my incredibly talented niece rachelle is up and running today. there is still a bit more tweaking to do. i never realized how much work went into starting a new business and launching a website! candice and i will be hosting our first art retreat at a cabin in the mountains of park city, utah June 20-24th. we are so thrilled to have three amazing artists coming to teach.
if you haven't seen misty mawns gorgeous paintings check out her blog. such lovely work and an amazing person. nina bagley first introduced me to misty at the last art and soul retreat in portland. i am so excited misty has started teaching and can't wait to take her 'spontaneous art' class.
sally jean alexander just published a beautiful book 'pretty little things'. she will be teaching collaging and soldering in her class 'the gothic pendant'. sally jean will also be the guest artist at a trunk show at one of my favorite stores dear lizzie in highland while she is here in utah. i can't wait to see in person more of her lovely, sparkling work.
kristin steiner is the third artist that will be teaching at the retreat. she is a fabric artist that has been working in mixed media art for the past 6 years. i adored 32 artful playthings that was on the cover of cloth, paper, scissors in spring 2006. she will be teaching the class 'i am a woman who' a fabric book that incorporates dying, stamping, layering and collaging with fabric.
