Come celebrate the season of love! The Artist Mercantile in St. Paul is throwing a pre-Valentine’s Day event in February. The Jewelry Trunk Show and Soirée takes place on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 7–8.
On Friday from 11am–1pm, take in a lunchtime jewelry trunk show, and while you’re there enjoy samples of fabulous chocolate truffles. The mother-daughter team of DeDesigns Jewelry will show their vintage-inspired collection, which is made from materials such as gold filigree, silver, crystals, and rhinestones.
On Saturday from 7–9pm, you can again find the jewelry of DeDesigns and chocolate, plus you can sample some wine. The evening will also highlight my mixed-media shadowboxes, as well as the work of Sarah Wash, who works in acrylic, pencil, watercolor, and Mod Podge. Both my and Sarah’s collage work will be up at Artist Mercantile through March 8.
Spread the word and come share the love!

The Artist Mercantile offers a wide variety of Minnesota-made art and gifts that are perfect for any occasion.
Still haven’t gotten your booty to Paper Hat to see my solo show, Through the Glass: a collection of mixed-media shadowboxes? You’re in luck…but not for long. The show runs through next Tuesday, Aug. 14. So get on over there and check out my brand-new pieces.
While there, just *try* to not buy something from one of the great artists who are represented in the shop. Everything is so damn cute, you’ll be coveting things in no time. You will find among the items my Minnesota Icons, greeting cards, and postcards.
And if you’re so inclined, take home one of my shadowboxes. Each one tells a personal story, and I hope you interpret them in your own way and make the stories your own.
Let me know if you get to Paper Hat (it’s in south Minneapolis), and pass along your feedback on the show. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
