February Schedule and A SHOW!


This Thursday, February 9, the Torpedo Factory will be hosting an evening of Love & Friendship. There will be lots of opportunities to make Valentine's Cards, preview the Art League's Patron Show, hear a talk in the Archaeology Museum and talk to the artists while they work in their studios.

COME COLOR WITH ME. I'll have some coloring books and sheets, pencils, makers and crayons. Not feeling love? How about friendship? Come and commune with color! Relax and have some art therapy. 

More vague details here on the Torpedo Factory website. BUT a lot more going on in the building than posted. Come and see for yourself!



Pre Spring Fling: Celebrating local artisans


Several local artists and artisans will be sharing their heart made work with you. Detailed mosaics, lovely beaded jewelry, handcrafted chocolates and more will be available.


I will have some snuggly hats and fingerless gloves. Hearts made from recycled antique quilts. Small purses and pouches to tuck in love notes and treasures.

Come join us for a relaxing afternoon of browsing with friend, new and old!


When: Saturday, February 11, 3-6pm

Where: River's Edge Yoga, 2nd floor, 300 Montgomery Street, Suite 201, Alexandria, VA 22314

Who: Me, my hats, some awesome mosaic wall pieces, lovely jewelry and you?

There will be freeeeee parking, but I do not have the details yet. CHECK OUT THE FB event page as I will update there too.


Speaking of which, let's keep in touch!! I'm all over the place, you're all over the place. Why don't we hang out some place else than here. Check out my Facebook page for more updates, articles and links about art and eco art in general. Over on Instagram, I post works in progress, finished projects, cool art and some food. Not much food. There's a lot of food on Instagram. But I post only good food....

So, there's this week, things going on. Next week, more things happening...

But, I've been rude! What about you? What you have going on? Instagram accounts that are cool? Good food? {Comments are moderated, so will not show up right away. :) }

Happy Love Day~Jen

January Schedule





Sorry this is so late folks!! The year had a very busy start, full of a lot of things left over from last year. Piles and piles and piles of clothing, market supplies, gifts and more had to be organized and cleaned up. And, and, and.... you get the idea.

In addition, I have taken a break from doing my studio hours and have a WONDERFUL ceramic artist in my studio, throwing pots, mugs and more.  Dana Lehrer Danze is such a talent. I love her work and am so happy to have her in my space for a few weeks. PLEASE goa nd see her this week or next, in the hours listed above. BUY something lovely from her. PRAISE her work.

You will not be disappointed!

Here's a sample:




And, you can see so much more work on her website. Click here. 

I will be back in my studio toward the end of the month, hopefully with new work and some fresh ideas.... So hard to get back to it, right?
