Rocking and rolling!
Renting space in the old Hutchins and Perrault shed located in East Barre, VT I have been busy crafting memorials and making my own sculptures. The work has been steady; cutting stone and creating art for a network of local small family run manufacturers and large corporations alike.
2017 was a great year filled with bustling activity in the studio and beyond. I had an amazing experience instructing the Stone Carving classes at GIA this summer session. What a great group of young adults and budding Vermont carvers! If you have creative teens in VT check out this program. www.giaofvt.com they are now accepting applications for 2018.
This fall I joined forces with the empowering organization Vermont Works For Women. Colleague in arms Sophie Bettman-Kerson and I were part of their Action Expo at the Women Can Do! Conference at Vermont Technical College. This annual event promotes STEM and Trades careers and gives over 400 high school age girls the opportunity to experience hands on trade work in a variety of professions.
I am extremely excited to share that the four person show I participated in at The Castleton Downtown Gallery Rutland, VT "Revival: Stone and Steel" is reviewed in the March 2018 issue of Sculpture Magazine. Please take a look at the link on my Press Page!
