Tres chicas locas

“If it’s both terrifying and amazing then you should definitely pursue it” – Erada

Traveling has always been a part of who I am. Adventure runs through my veins. For years I’ve made conscious decisions for me and my daughter; laying down roots in Connecticut. However, a mixture of the right time and a desire to live a simpler more meaningful life has manifested itself. It’s time for us to soar and experience a different culture, learn a new language and write our own futures.

On August 15th I will be moving to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, with my daughter, my mother, and our two dogs- Bling-Bling and Luna. Three generations moving clear across the country to Mexico. It’s hard to imagine, but fun to picture.

San Miguel is a majestic 16th Century City set 6400 feet above sea level in the mountains of central Mexico. I will be working on my fine-art photography as well as some documentary and wedding work. In pursuit of meaningful artistry and inspiration, I chose San Miguel because of the brilliance of color and light, because of the historic architecture, and most of all because of the warmth and infectious spirit of the people I met while I was there. Observing the the cultural traditions that are still carried out to this day after 500 years is both irresistible and insatiable.

I’ve attached some photographs here and a map so you can get an idea of just where our journey will take place. I will, of course, be continuing with my blog to keep you all informed, but really, my camera will do the talking to continue to enlighten and inspire whenever I can.

This is a two year commitment but… who knows? To stay current and to visit all my loved ones I am booking weddings and portraits for next summer in New England.

Open Studios November 9th and 10th!

On November 9th and 10th my studio building The American Fabrics Arts Building in Bridgeport Connecticut will be opening their doors to the public. Our building hosts 28 artists who’s focus is in painting, printmaking, sculpture, quilting, jewelry, photography, ceramics, textiles, design, mixed media and more. This is a kid-friendly event. We will be providing food, beverages and live music and my studio will be hosting a photo booth!

I have been working hard printing, framing and creating new pieces for this event. Included in my open studios are framed-works starting at $250 and collage pieces starting at $300. Below are some images from my new portfolios.

Hope to see you there!

We are also hosting a donation event for Bridgeport Rescue Mission who we share a building with. We are accepting clothing and non-perishable donations. Monetary donations will enter you in a raffle to win an original quilt by Denyse Schmidt.
