Howdy folks!! Just a little up~to~date blurb of what
I have been up to the past few weeks!
I've been introduced to this new site called
Spoonflower that allows you to design
your own fabric!! I'm pretty excited to give this a whirl!
Feel free to check out my latest
designs. I only have one available for purchase at this time,
but will have more ready soon!

I just want to thank those who came in on Friday to come and see me and to help support me in my first "art showing". There were so many amazing artists showing their work that night!! Tthere was also some AMAZING jewelry by Ali Peret Designs Studio!! (LOVE LOVE LOVE THE PETAL PEARLS!!) Oh and not to mention FABULOUS wines from Mt. Defiance Wine Company!!
Most of all a BIG FAT THANK YOU to my hubby and for making that happen, Dennis Noreen of Strategy Insurance for allowing us to invade his office, last but not least, Rip and his lovely employees for letting me show my work at his gallery in the first place! What a fun group of peeps that work there!!
I will keep you posted on more events to come!!
This Friday is First Art Walk in downtown Troutdale, Oregon. Rip Caswell Gallery is hosting a "From Sea to Shore" event featuring local artists from the area. I have been given the pleasure to display some of my original art work in this event as well. I'm very excited. There will also be the event "A Gift From the Sea" featuring the largest selection of pearls in the NW by Ali Peret Designs Studios!! Be sure to check my events section on my website for more details!!
I'm pretty excited to announce that I was given the opportunity to be on location with a student short film titled SNEAKERS directed by Brandon Reed. I was able to shoot some "behind the scenes" photography and I had a great time. I borrowed a camera so I wasn't real familiar with it, but I got some great shots here and there. I have always wanted to be working behind the scenes in anyway possible and now I have! :D
Be sure to click on the photo above to check out this film!
Be sure to check out Corbett's 5th Annual Red & Black Auction Dinner!!
Once again for the 3rd year in a row I will be head decorator for Corbett's largest fundraiser!!!

Fine Wine and Lots To Bark About
For a Great Cause.
Join us for Vino & Fido at the Wy’East Vineyards
Tasting Room to benefit Hood River’s
Adopt-A-Dog program. Wy’East Vineyards’ own
adopted mutts, Asia and Roxie, will “host” the event,
demonstrating the cheerful, if shy, companionship
every dog can give. There will be a limited number
of signed posters available for sale, featuring
photogenic Asia, by Gorge artist Barbette Garwood Dotson,
with all proceeds going to the Adopt-A-Dog program.
There will be all sorts of tail wagging activities, food and
beverages for the whole family to enjoy. Adults can taste
a glass of fine wine on Wy’East Vineyards scenic patio and
grounds all day. Vino & Fido will be a BYOD--
Bring Your Own Dog event, but it is not necessary for you
to bring a furry friend to enjoy the fun. Sponsors of
prizes/activities include Gorge Dog, and Wy’East Vineyards
who will donate a portion of the sale of each bottle of wine.
It's OFFICIAL...my artwork will grace the cover of the new menu for the Springdale Pub in Springdale, OR(aka the Tav)! So if you are ever cruising along the Scenic Columbia River Gorge Hwy, be sure to pop in and take a peek! Heck while your there, order a frosty cold beverage and some good grub before heading on down the road!!
Thank you Christie and Lisa for the opportunity to be a part of this great community! Gotta love the Gorge, gotta love the Pub!!
Here is a sample of the menu and the artwork. :)
