All the News that Fits in August


 Work Available at the Torpedo Factory 

From now until the end of August, my work will be shown in Studio 226 at the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Old Town Alexandria, 105 N. Union Street, Alexandria, VA. I will be staffing the studio on Mondays and Fridays, but you can come visit my work, even if I am not there.

Meet My Studio Mates!

I am sharing the space with three very talented artists. Below, see some of their work.


Poppi is created Dawn Benedetto and much like herself, is bright, fun and guaranteed to make you smile. The work is made mostly from sterling silver components that pair with glass or Lucite beads. This work is for the folks that love COLOR. Her work can also be seen in her online store.

Petal Rings are made with elastic so they fit many different sized hands.

Alicia Roman

Alicia Roman's work take minusale bits and combines them in inventive ways. Gears and old books become a pair of earrings. Sample credit cards become a barrette. Resin encase stones and make them shine. Read more about her here.

Love these star burst earrings!

range of emotion

 Jenae Michelle is the artist behind range of emotion. These works of art made out of vintage fabrics that might otherwise be discarded. Her purses and bags are hardy enough to use everyday, special enough to save for a lifetime.  See more work online.

This one is ready for the Fall!

Button Lust, you know you have it.

Please come to meet these works, and artists, in real life.  Studio 226 is on the 2nd floor, near the top of the spiral staircase. We are open 7 days a week, hours vary by day.

Featured Artist at the Workhouse

For the month of August, I will be the Featured Artist in Building 9 at the Workhouse Arts Center. I will be showing a huge collection of aprons! Aprons are your dry cleaners' enemy, but your pants best friend. Like a mother, they protect you, allow you to abuse them and are back for more. :) 

Come on August 10th for The Second Saturday Art Walk and  check out my work, along with all the featured artists. There are many things going on during the day and into the evening, so be sure to leave enough time to look at everything. We are open late until 9pm. For more information, check out the Workhouse website.

I think that is it for me for August. OH, and getting ready for lots of shows in September. I'll be back out there under my tent around the DMV, so come say hi, why don't you?!

Have a safe and artistic end of summer~Jen
