My wearable art business Mariposa Artisan Textiles entered its 4th year officially with the Beacon Hill Open House this past weekend. My gracious host, Patty O’Keefe Hutton (www.contemporaryicons.com), created a beautiful nest for both myself and Michelle Jordan (www.jordanclaystudio.com) within which to present our work, and the result was a wonderfully blended and complementary mix. Thank you to all who dropped by to say hello and see the latest pieces!!….Moving into the present, I am “back in the saddle” with a full production schedule ahead. The felt keeps rolling and the dyepots flow. I am also preparing to teach, in mid-October, the first of two nuno felt workshops. Much is evolving, in-flux and indeed progressing, at Studio Mariposa. This is an expansive time as much energy is directed toward building work and being out in the world. However, I’m determined to find the space and time for deeper reflection. With an open heart, I move forward.
Receptive #4 heads to the #Hambidge auction next week.
Final day of the natural dye print workshop (this past Sunday) - a resounding success! Thank you to all who participated! I’m also grateful for the space and facilities at the SEFAA Center. 🎉More images in stories.

Meanwhile…3-d work in progress.
Some examples of print/paint process with #naturaldyes. I’m teaching a 2-day IRL workshop in mid-September - more info from me soon or visit @sefiberarts / fiberartsalliance.org for their workshop listings. Space is limited.
Strange year for me, much of it spent outside of the studio - but that’s about to change….I began cutting and assembling these pieces earlier this year, a continuation of the stitched module series I started during “lock-down” last year. Now I’m preparing these for framing.
@swancoachhousegallery Summer Invitational continues through August 12th.
