Precious Metal Show in Wilmington, NC

What a lovely experience the Precious Metal Show was! This was my first time participating in the event which is held in the most beautiful old church that has been converted into an event space for the Brooklyn Arts Center. I wish I had taken some images of the interior of the space because it was so beautiful! I will make sure to do that next time!

FallCrafts at Lyndhurst 2016

Fall Crafts at Lyndhurst is held on the grounds of the Lyndhurst Mansion in Tarrytown NY. I didn't get a chance to tour the mansion but I love the lines of this old greenhouse structure! See you there in September 2017!

About The North Carolina Arts Council

The North Carolina Arts Council works to make North Carolina The Creative State where a robust arts industry produces a creative economy, vibrant communities, children prepared for the 21st century and lives filled with discovery and learning. The Arts Council accomplishes this in partnership with artists and arts organizations, other organizations that use the arts to make their communities stronger and North Carolinians—young and old—who enjoy and participate in the arts.


I was born in Seattle and recently I took a trip to visit my family.  I love traveling because it gives me a chance to step outside of myself and my daily routine.  My horizon widens and I am able observe my surroundings with a certain freshness.  Here are some images from my travels.
