Winter Greetings from Chinook Studios!
We will have Open Studios on 1/8 and 1/15. Come see us!
Also, a pop-up show at a local gallery, Art Under the Arches, on 1/17.
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to focus on my new body of work.
For awhile now I've been taking photographs, specifically of skies, and translating into small sketches and paintings. I have also been using patterns found in paiute basketry. Combining all of these elements together I find that my new small works are forming a bold new direction for my work.
I will do my darndest to post my adventures on Instagram from Ajo during my Residency.

July 28, 2018: I had the pleasure of taking a Black Ash basket class with Kelly Church. She is amaznig! My daugther joined in on the fun too.
In September of 2015, I had the opportunity to take an AMAZING Paiute/Miwok Basketry class in Yosemite through the Yosemite Conservancy from Lucy Parker, her mother Juia Parker, and her daughter Ursula. It was an honor to begin learning a traditional art form.
The class was a true learning experience. I am incredibly lucky to have been able to take it from this amazing family. I met some great friends. I was humbled by great teachers as well. I have many years of learning to go. Materials have already been gathered (Thanks Peggy and Clay) to start some baskets in the Spring.
