I guess Charles Bukowski got it right. It's been way too long since I updated my blog. That's the problem with technology, too much of it and not enough time.
It was a fabulous experience at the Doll Exhibition in St. Petersburg Russia. I taught two sessions of my Dreamfish classes. I want to thank all of my new Russian friends for your warm hospitality and sharing. Art and creativity are universal bonds that bring us together. You are all truly wonderful!
In July,Chicago was the site of the 2010 NIADA annual conference.
Now it's time to look forward.
I have several new projects in the works. In May, I'm proud to be exhibiting at the First Annual Doll & Teddy Bear Artist & Collector Convention presented by The Susan Quinlan Doll & Teddy Bear Museum. If you can get to Philadelphia, this promises to be an incredible opportunity.
Terry and Susan have brought together an amazing group of people and organizations from across the country to celebrate, educate and appreciate artists and collectors of dolls and teddy bears in a wide range of media. I hope to see you there!
In August, it's off to Denver. I'll be exhibiting and teaching two classes:Hand Felted Animal Head and Costuming from Conception to Completion.

That's all for now. I'll try to be more diligent in my updates. Thanks for your patience.
