UPCOMING EVENTS

I'm taking this show on the road! Come visit me in person, where you can try on my beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces. I'll be at these upcoming events:  

Placer Artists Tour 2022, Placer County CA - November 11-13 and November 18-20, 2022, 10am-5pm. Celebrating its 29th year, the Placer Artists Studios Tour is the largest and longest-standing Visual Art Studio Tour in the region. Come visit artists like me in our studios, enjoy refreshments while you meet the artists in person, and see our latest pieces!

Cornish Christmas, Grass Valley CA - November 25, and December 23, 2022, 6-9pm. Downtown Grass Valley will be filled with the sights and sounds of an old fashioned Christmas; carolers, musicians, and a fire pit to warm your hands.  Look for Santa and Mrs. Claus, Snow Queen, the Tree Lady, and other holiday characters.  The event hosts craft and food vendors, and the town shops, restaurants, wine tasting rooms, tap houses and bars are open.  The streets will be awash in festive holiday décor, lights and sparkling windows.

Victorian Christmas, Nevada City CA - Dec 4, 11, & 18 from 1:30 – 6pm, and Dec 7 & 14 from 5 – 9pm.  Welcome the holiday season in Nevada City. It’s a magical setting of hilly streets with authentic gas lamps, wandering carolers dressed in Victorian attire, and visitors sharing holiday cheer and good tidings.  This annual, family tradition takes place two Wednesday evenings and three Sunday afternoons in December. There are holiday activities for all ages including live entertainment, yuletide treats and libations, and Father Christmas!
