Upcoming Event: Art at the Farm

If you are in S.E. Michigan, I will be hosting a few workshops in the farm studio of a friend.  It is an amazing space with lots of inspiration. As of today I do not yet have dates but if you would like me to add you to my workshop mailing list, email me at and I would be happy to send you out a notice when the dates have been solidified.

Between April and May I will be hosting 3 workshops:

1. Farmhouse E’criture (info below) 2. Bookmaking:the story of me and you (info coming soon) 3. Painting your Soul: discovering the art you were born to create (info coming soon)

{Dates to be Determined}

Farmhouse E’critures

This is a new class that I am offering for groups of 6 to 20. You can gather in your homes, churches or wait for an upcoming event. You will create a farmhouse pallet sign with  your choice of size, color, style and inspiration.  These are some of the available choices:

These are just the design options, wood stain and all colors are your choice. I will be uploading stain choices for the signs soon so check back. There are also custom options for both the round and rectangular sizes.  I will be adding that soon too 🙂 In the mean time you can email me at if you would like to host an event.

The cost is $40 a person and includes everything you will need to complete and hang your project. (Southeast Michigan) For western and northern Michigan as well as north west Ohio, please email me and we can discuss the logistics of me coming to you.

*Times and costs for the classes will vary depending on several factors including the number of attending artists, supplies needed for your choice of class, abilities of the creative seekers, and how in-depth you would live to delve. We can discuss that! I will work with you to tailor your gathering to your groups needs.
