Come check out my last art show of the year – along with a list of local artists, this show is a wonderfully affordable way to buy smallish art work and support Pasado’s Safe Haven for animals right here in Washington.

When: December 10th, 6-9pm

Where: Wallflower Custom Framing

Film Friday: Mother

Happy May! I don’t know about you, but I’m already thinking about Mother’s Day…

That’s why I’m sharing this photography today – my first award winning photograph I took of my Mom, when I was 6. I won a ribbon at the Fair and was delighted. My Mom has been my number one fan and has helped encourage my creative growth. I am forever grateful!

In honor of Mother’s Day…

Additional images available for purchase at $25 each. Let’s plan a fun session that reflects what you enjoy doing with your kids or your favorite spot in Seattle.

p.s. I LOVE to use Pinterest to brainstorm ideas!

Art Photography Fun: Robotany giveaway!

With the holiday season is in full swing, I get to table at 3 Holiday Art and Gift shows by Christmas!

I have magnet sets, cards, calendars, iPhone cases and small Wood mounted prints to sell. This year, I’m especially excited, because I get to debut the Robotany series Calendar for the first time ever! While I was in a flurry to get ready for the first of the holiday shows last month, I made a mistake. I ordered the Robotany Calendars but accidentally used a photograph twice…A $110 lesson I’ll never forget.

Instead of crying about it, I’m going to make the most of my mistake and give 3 of the calendars away! The first 3 people who comment on this post get ’em! I’ll mail them to you at no charge, count it as my thank you for enjoying the series.

The little photo that could and does appear twice in the mistake calendar batch.

Here’s a peek at the cover of the 2014 Robotany Calendar with all 12 photographs, and there’s a surprise photograph for January 2015!




Hello, Fall!

This is my daughter’s favorite season. I love it too, the colors, smell and spices. It’s also the time of year that I get crafty and start gift shopping for Christmas.

Living in Seattle, there are literally over a dozen holiday art shows from October-December. I’m getting into the swing of these with two local shows in West Seattle! My daughter joined me this Summer at the Alki Art Fair, and we had so much fun, that she will be joining me whenever possible at every event I do from now on until she’s ready to host her own.

So, mark your calendars for The Fauntleroy Fine Art and Holiday Gifts Show, 9140 California Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98136

Since the show is hosted in a church, the times for the show vary by day:
Fri. Nov. 15, 5-8pm,
Sat. Nov. 16, 10-4,
Sun. Nov. 17, 11-2

We’re getting excited as we print and package our art gifts. The show features over a dozen local artists from jewelry to knit to watercolor. This year, I’ll debut a new line of garlands like this one:

My latest addition to the art photography shop will debut in November!
