FROM THE STUDIO...
After much thought and discussion, my technology expert and web-master, who also happens to be my son Ryan, and I, decided the time had come to change the focus of my site. The site is now focused on the work itself. You may have read more about the history of the sequence of events that lead up to this change, in my post on "Day to Day".
Numerous questions from former clients and from people interested in the work, were a tremendous help in our decision making about how best to redesign the site. The hope is that the new features will help to address those questions and others about availability of work, technical aspects of the work, installation concerns, of course the time line is always a factor, and prices, along with other concerns. The new features and information should help answer many of those questions.
One huge goal is to help a potential client visualize the work they are considering for a particular space(s). This is true whether they are considering work that is available or a commission. For this purpose we have a section of available work and a section with images of many of the commissioned projects I have done over the years. Testimonials from some of the clients, along with their contact information are available. In addition, soon there will be a video explaining what is involved if you are considering a commissioned art work.
My site will include examples my newest work, event announcements for exhibitions and workshops and will feature images of work in progress in my studio. Other videos are being planned that will answer frequently asked questions such as, "What is terra sigillata?"
Last but not least, I hope to do all of the above in a highly personal way that will reflect my 50 years + experience as an artist. In my case, my life as an artist is woven with a tangle of everyday life experiences, teaching, travel. Sharing with others is part of my life's mission as an artist, a teacher, parent, mentor, grandparent, spouse, and friend.
Please give feedback! We are still ironing out the wrinkles. So bring it on! We would love to have your questions, thoughts and suggestions. What so you like, what is unnecessary, what don't you like and what will keep you coming back to check out what is new....Thank you!
