I have been in the middle of a huge transformation! I recently relocated my shop to Denver, Colorado. I JUST joined the brand new Rocky Mountain Chapter of NOMMA (The National Organization & Miscellaneous Metals Association). https://www.nomma.org/ and I am starting a YouTube Channel! SO MUCH NEWNESS!!!
I ventured onto new horizons to take a deep dive into a much bigger, more diverse art scene. I knew I needed to be around other artists at different stages, and my craving to be in proximity to lots of art galleries, makers and happenings landed me in Denver, a creative incubator.
Last week I finished forging steel cupboard handles for my parents' kitchen. My mom was in love with a leaf design by another blacksmith and asked me to do this years ago. For some reason, maybe other creatives can relate, if I don't have a deadline, the idea lives in limbo FOREVER. Timing aligned, though, and my part is completed. I cannot wait to see them installed!
I am creating sculptures and wall pieces to put up at coffee shops and restaurants. I am also preparing for an upcoming art show in one of Wyoming's best galleries, the Nicolaysen Art Museum in Casper, my hometown. My show will open up May 29, 2020. It's the Year of the Woman at the Nic, and I am thrilled to be apart of it.
Stay tuned for new videos, progress pictures, and updates! Thank you for checking out my art. I believe that in a world that can be too much and not enough and everything in between, it is art that consistently transmutes pain into beauty.
