2011 Keynote

I was deeply honored to be the Keynote Speaker for the Metal Clay World Conference 2011  July 14-16 in Bloomingdale, Illinois.  It was a rewarding and fulfilling experience and one that has helped me grow and develop and explore and share.

In addition to the keynote address, I presented a two day pre-conference workshop Developing an Artistic Identity and a conference seminar Developing an Effective Pricing Formula

It was a pleasure, honour and eye opening creative experience to work with you in your pre-confernce class. I am back at home with renewed energy. I’ve rearranged my studio and will be formally sitting down to continue creation tomorrow. I say “formally” because ideas haven’t stopped flowing through my mind since last Wednesday. I will keep in touch so you can see, and hopefully be engaged by, my progress.
