what's up with jill?

Wondering what happened with Jill's bag?

She Measured and cut, ironed and sewed, then created the base.
Next steps: inner and outer layers were sewn up and then ready t be sewn together. The handles got sewn on, layers pinned together (wrong sides out) and finally the topstitching on the bag was done.

Here are a few more photos from Jill's work of art. Make sure to check out her amazing etsy if you haven't yet. I have a Jill Bent bag that I take with me every time walk over to the grocery store!
Thanks Jill!

wendy mink jewelry and a new watercolor

I have a crush on wendy mink's jewelry.

Also, here is one of my new jewelry inspired watercolors. She is an original, comes matted and framed and is only $2oo. Email I currently have her in my office, but think she would look great near a closet! So chic.

Phila show

A huge thank you to James Oliver and his amazing gallery staff for including my work in the show "bodies" this past week.

One thing people are always surprised at is how large my canvases are in person. The space really showed them off perfectly.

The work will be in the gallery through August, so if you're in town please visit. Next stop... DE.
