A Treemendous New Year

It’s a brand new year, and with the change from 2021 to 2022 comes renewed hope and excitement. Despite the turbulence that 2021 brought, I believe that 2022 will be full of bountiful opportunities, and it’s my greatest joy to share them with all of you.
As I get settled into my home and my artwork develops, I’m continuing my involvement in the Missouri art community with a thrilling partnership with a local used bookstore here in Springfield, ABC Bookstore , located at 2109 N Glenstone Ave. November 22nd kicked off my time with them, and if you stop by you’ll find my canvas and laminated bookmarks, and single-note cards. But if you’re looking for a more hands-on experience, you’re in luck–along with the physical items for sale, ABC Books and I will be hosting a make and take bookmark workshop. Scheduled for Saturday, January 22nd from 1:00-2:30 pm. All supplies included. A hands on experience just in time for a sweetheart gift.

Continuing my journey to connect with people around the country, I will also be partnering with a realtor, Carlyn Bedwell with Century 21 based in Nevada and Utah, creating custom Thank You cards and laminated bookmarks to send to her community. These handmade works will feature my trees as well as dogs, and they will be perfect to send to her friends and clients. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to make custom work for a new friend. If this sounds like something you might be interested in well, let’s get in touch!
In addition to personalized work, I will be featuring six works of art at a local
lounge. A beautiful coffee and cocktail establishment named The Mud Lounge this January. Their owner, Nicky Brownstone is a Springfield local and the leading lady behind the sculpture walk downtown. I can’t wait to work together and share my pieces with the Springfield art scene.
While I will no longer be selling my work at Relics Antique Mall, my Etsy and my website are stocked (as always!) with brand new pieces that are perfect for any nature lover. Stop by and pick up a gift for that friend you want to keep by your side in the new year, or treat yourself to something nice. Keep up with new items in my shop and all things The Healing Tree Studio by signing up for my Artist Insights Newsletter.

I hope this new year holds nothing but happiness and abundance for all of you. As we move forward into the winter season, I plan to cultivate my creativity and create new work to share with the world. Let’s make something that we can be proud of, together. Onward and upward!
