Today is a beautiful rainy spring day in Seldovia. A little wind, a little sun and here and there some sprinkles of rain.
I am making some homemade soup and finishing up some artwork. I am so glad you stopped by..please get yourself a cup of coffee and join me in my kitchen studio.
I have a regular studio upstairs ...but to tell you the truth..my kitchen table is where I do most of my art....with a cup of coffee and good friends stopping by to chat. Sit down and stay awhile..I am never too busy for company!
My oldest daughter Shannon passed July 23, 2012. My life is changed forever. I will miss her. Her celebration of life will be held in Seldovia, Alaska, September 1, 2012 at the Seldovia Library Multipurpose room. It will be a potluck so bring your favorite dish and join us as we celebrate her life and memory with family and friends.
The following photos are the sculpture I worked on this summer. At least that is where part of my time went. I really like how she turned out. You can follow along in the pictures and sort of see how she was made. There are many, many more photos, these are just a few.
I am an Alaskan born artist, living in a small rural alaskan fishing village. I have 6 wonderful children and 15 grandchildren all of whom are bright, beautiful and very talented. I admire anyone who makes handmade items. The traditional crafts that were so important years ago, were beautiful as well as useful.
I also am the oldest of a very large family. 6 brothers and 1 sister....My sister lives in Fairbanks...one brother lives here in Seldovia...one in Tampa...very spread out family....but love them all.
