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.

Otherworldly. I’ve been working with #indigodyeing this week (see my story for details on the process and finished pieces). I can’t help but be intrigued by random drip patterns on the paper I use to move the vat “flower” aside while I’m dyeing.
I am overflowing with inspiration - head working faster than my body can manifest. Am content with process being it’s own reward.
