Just wanted to show you what it's like when I'm in production mode. Usually I don't have time to take pictures, but I did get one of my slim pen parts after they've been lacquered and set out to dry.

It's that time of year again?

I can't believe it's that time of year again! It's the Christmas Craft Show Season! This year, I decided to do 4 shows...yes, I said 4! You may say...Hey! That's not alot of shows to do. It may not be a big number if you're doing weekend shows at smaller venues, but I'm actually in 4 different cities....across 2 provinces. Three of these shows are major ones in their cities.

I start this coming weekend in my lovely hometown of Victoria, BC...Gifts for Myself and Others...a beautiful little show with just under 30 of the finest Island Artisans. I'm proud to be part of this group of artists! From Nov. 17-21st, I'll be in Vancouver at the Circle Craft Christmas Market at the new Vancouver Convention Centre. Luckily, I have a nice little break before I head off to Alberta! Calgarians can find me at the Calgary Festival of Crafts from Dec. 2-5th. Hey! Just noticed they used my new teapot in their advertising! Then I wrap up my show circuit in Edmonton at the Butterdome Craft Sale from Dec. 9-12th.

I hope to see familiar faces at these's the highlight of my year to see my friends at the shows and the clients that I've met through the years.

Sneak Peek on my Work Process...

Many questions have been asked about my work...'Is it Painted?' is one of the most popular one. I thought I'd add a few photos of my sculpting of a cat face cane for my cat winestoppers to show you a bit of my work process....Enjoy!
