This last year I illustrated my mom’s book “My Bring Up”, a memoir of her childhood growing up in the small town of Chelsea Vermont. Throughout the process my mom and I collaborated on the images I created. It was a whole new experience reading the stories and then having her describe her memories to me. The small details she remembers really brought the stories to life.
A few weeks ago I had the wonderful experience of creating artwork en plein air with two wonderful ladies! Lynn Adams is an amazing jewelry designer, metal smith & enamallist from Lyme, NH. She is one of the founders of Collective – the Art of Craft in Woodstock, VT. We met last year at the VINS en Plein Air Festival and have since become art friends. Jo Tate is a wonderful watercolor artist & teacher. She has had shows all over the Upper Valley. This was our first time meeting, and we became fast friends.
