The new show season is about to begin. We are starting this year with a new show (for us), the Coconut Grove Arts Festival in Miami. From there we will head up to the Baltimore American Craft Council show and then it's back down to Florida for the Palm Beach Craft Show. Since the shows we do are juried, we have to wait for the results to know our full schedule, but it is filling up quickly.  For the rest of our schedule and show details, follow the link below.

We just had an amazing photoshoot. The quality of the photos is beyond anything we ever thought we'd see with Elaine's work. It all down to the professionals involved. Let's begin with Donna Granata. Donna is a photographer who has dedicated herself to documenting the lives and work of artists through her organization "Focus on the Masters". The thing Is, Donna is an artist in her own right. It was an honor to see her process as she worked with the models.

Elaine's husband, Keith, writing. The first three shows are successfully complete. Now I get to brag on my wife. At the first show of the season and in our first appearance there, Elaine was awarded first place in the category of Jewelry and Metal. Quite an accomplishment since this was the largest category in the show.


We had a fun evening in December. We attended the premiere of a film short featuring my work. It was part of a film festival, a formal affair with a red carpet and a catered meal. The short is a music video titled "Danger Zone". It was born out of a conversation my husband, Keith, and I had with our friends Steve and Virginia. S&V have this amazing Egyptian style house that they designed and built and the ground floor is done as a nightclub. Keith suggested doing a photoshoot of people wearing my work in a club setting. S & V were enthusiastic, as they are about any idea that is fun, offbeat and creative. Time passed and Steve approached us with the idea of turning the photoshoot into a video.
