Patterns

Patterns always interest me...I look for them everywhere. My recent trip to Minneapolis was so fun and interesting sites were in abundance. These are from the Walker Museum, The Art Institute, the Minneapolis Center for  Book Arts,  and unique shops

Minneapolis to Asheville

I've been traveling again to teach at some great locations...heading to Asheville, North Carolina in a couple of weeks to teach at Random Arts in Saluda....this is my last easterly trip in the States so sign up soon! 

Minneapolis was my latest stop to teach for Art and Soul. We'll return early May next year so keep in touch for new workshops. 

Minneapolis has so much to offer for the arts...the museums are  amazing and the Center for Book Arts....my oh my...housed in a turn of the century restored building with a cafe no less!
Here are some pics of the Center for Book Arts and  MIA Institute of the Art ......

Rancho Bellota workshop in Baja Mexico

Just returned from Rancho Bellota in Baja, Mexico....the whole experience was incredible and enchanting as always......I've written about the ranch before in an earlier post...and I must say that I'm still on an natural high...this ranch is so special to my heart. Think about joining me next year about the same time for the experience of a lifetime.
