Dollmakers aims to shine a light on some of the most exciting dolllmakers around."
I will have five dolls in this show. For my L.A. friends, I'm looking into attending the opening reception. We'll see...

May 10th and 11th: WABE Convention, Artist of the Year
I am thrilled and honored to have been chosen Artist of the Year for this year's Washington Association of Bilingual Educators! The piece I made for WABE and submitted to the committee was selected as the image to promote the convention, and will be the cover art on their program. The convention will be held at the Tacoma Convention Center, and I will have a display there selling my art as well as prints of the winning image. A big thanks to Jen H. for alerting me to this opportunity!
