McKinney Art Studio Tour

MAST

A smashing success and an event re-imagined!

I have lived in McKinney for over 12 years and I chose McKinney specifically for its strong art community.  Long before I declared my own artist's heartbeat to the world, I was an enthusiastic viewer of McKinney's annual Art Studio Tour - MAST.  Touring the spaces where artists create their work always had a spark of magic.  Getting to peek behind the curtain and see these spaces seeped in inspiration was euphoria-inducing for me.  So 2019 was a dream come true - my own home studio was be featured on the tour.  It was thrilling to show more about my processes with both encaustic and pottery - especially to provide encaustic demonstrations to visitors wholly unfamiliar with the medium.  I am deeply grateful for those who came out to this uniquely wonderful event, as well as the outpouring of support as I achieved a long-time goal.

MAST continues in 2020, despite the swirling challenges of this unique time.  

The Tour returns triumphant this year with each artist making creative arrangements to allow this amazing event to continue.  I will be hosting demos from my carport, where visitors can safely come and see the process of encaustic and learn more about the varied mediums I use when inspiration strikes.  I will have pottery pieces, encaustic and acrylic collage paintings, and Artfully Remade Journals available for sale as well.

Arts in Bloom 

This vibrant annual event was sadly canceled in 2020 in the interest of public safety. 

 

The good news is, McKinney is currently organizing the details for Arts in Bloom 2021. 

I can't wait to welcome art lovers back to Downtown McKinney for a future event.

Our show at The Cove was an exciting opportunity for collaboration with the incomparable Andrea Holmes.  “Another Time and Place” captured our fascination with the stories vintage items can tell us and the ways that pieces of history mesh with our present reality to reveal unexpected beauty.  We share an obsession with old stuff that is woven into all aspects of our work.  Arranging our pieces together in vignettes allowed the individual stories to join together in a visual chorus.  Our pieces “talked” to each other, ready to reveal whispers of the past repurposed.

 

Welcome to this exploration of “Another Time and Place” - where the images and architectural elements serve as an invitation to connect with the layers of story that we all carry with us.
