I am particularly gratified and awed at having something I did in enamels selected by such a world class enamelist. The exhibition runs from December 6th through January 19th. The opening…See More

You Are (the) Here: London

This was the final city to be visited for this stage of the You Are (the) Here project.

This is not to say that I did not thoroughly enjoy myself or see a great…See More

Hello Ana,
How are things going? How is motherhood treating you? Things are good here. I am in my last year at 500x and working on some other projects. Are you going to SNAG this year? I am going to try to go... I talked to Masumi and she said she will be apart of a few events. Hope all is well.
