Back in Durango
After a 9 month adventure in Mexico, London, and Chicago, I am back in Durango Colorado, and very happy to be here again in the beautiful San Juan Mountains! I recently began teaching classes at the inspiring Artesanos Design Collection in downtown Durango. Last month was an intro to Tile Mosaics class, and last weekend I led a tile mosaic mural workshop where 7 of us created and installed a beautiful sunset over the mountains scene on one of the walls at Artesanos. Next month I'll be teaching a Stained Glass Mosaic class there, perfect to create a one of a kind gift for the holidays!! I am also accepting custom work and tile installation projects, and am available to teach a class for your group or business! In other news, I also teach yoga, meditations, and am a co-organizer of powerful firewalk events. Please email me to speak about any of these possibilities! Love and Light!!
I have some exciting new things happening this fall to share!
For one thing, I've offered my skills to the Durango Botanical Society to add a mosaic to their native demonstrative garden at the Durango library. I'll be creating a whimsical garden scene to complement a stone memorial on the wall behind the garden.
I'm also offering a mosaic workshop the third weekend of September at the new Get Fused glass studio in downtown Durango!
Also the dome is still up in my yard and all are welcome to come view it, sit under, do some yoga, talk, meditate, or whatever inspires you. I am looking for. More suitable, covered space for it over the winter, or even better, to get it sold!
Most exciting is that i am attempting to organize a large collective art studio in a vacant building downtown. Local artists who are interested should contact me!
The Dome is Done!
After many months of work the mosaic meditation dome is finished! Photos are up in my portfolio. We took it to the festival it was made for, Apogaea, from whom I received the original grant for materials. It was an amazing time and place of radical self expression and cooperation. The dome was a big hit! I will be bringing it to another festival called Interdependence Day in Durango, CO. It is also now available for sale. It is a relief to have it finished. I will be enjoying it in my yard as a sacred yoga and meditation space.
Welcome to my new site! I hope you will find it more organized and streamlined.
Some news: Here in Durango I am working as a tile setter for a successful contractor and am learning the ins and outs of professional tile setting as well as becoming much more adept with tile. When I have time I am working on my own designs in my studio at the Underground Art Collective. I recently won a grant to create a mosaic dome for the Apogaea festival in Bailey, Colorado this June. My concept is a 6 foot tall geodesic-esque dome with stained glass mosaics inside each triangle, made to inspire a meditator seated within. More details soon!
