Join us for the second annual Art Fair & Open House at Sanctuary Arts in Eliot, ME on December 2nd for a great day of holiday shopping. We will be opening our new basement studio space, so make sure to come downstairs to see what we’ve been working on this year and check out our work in progress, new sculpture, jewelry, block prints & more.

I’m also having a small benefit for the nonprofit Friends of Aomori, which promotes the sister-state relationship between Maine & Aomori Prefecture in Japan. When you make a donation you’ll receive a handmade origami flower. Interested in making these flowers yourself? I’ll be teaching a one-day workshop at the Sanctuary in March showing how to make your own bouquet.
