Hi Everyone,

One week until we kick off another season at Picket Fence Art Studio.

SESSION ONE:  Sept 13 – Oct 13, 2016

Teen and Youth Classes:




Just a reminder to wear old clothes or bring a smock. I have aprons but some of our projects are a bit messy. I hate to see nice clothes ruined.

Also, for new students, the Studio is located on the North Side of the House. Follow the paved path that is just past the front door.

For siblings and returning students with a credit from last year, I will be sending out individual emails with the adjusted tuition amounts.

I hope you all had a wonderful summer. We finally “finished” our remodel and moved into our beautiful new home.


We just love it here! Thanks to all of you for your patience during the remodel and who helped with the move.

It was a whirlwind of a summer. I spent the second night that we were in the new house overnight at Overlake Hospital. My oldest daughter had a pretty major surgery. It went really well and she recovered quickly. My other kiddos were busy with music and Lacrosse camp and then we were off for an extended vacation to Italy.

Dreamy is the best description of our vacation –


Italy far exceeded all of our expectations. We loved the history of Rome, the countryside of Tuscany and the spectacular coastline of Amalfi.

We said goodbye to my oldest daughter in Naples.


She is spending the first quarter of her Junior Year at UW studying Spanish in Cadiz, Spain. She says it feels like an extended vacation.  (This is also the reason there will be a break between the first and second sessions, as I am traveling to see her in Spain the end of October).

In the middle of all this, I did get some studio time working on a Commission and I have been busy “capturing the moment” for many local seniors, including my own daughter who will be a senior this year!


(BTW – the deadline for WHS Senior Portraits is end of October.  Give me a call if you still need portraits).

I’m so excited to get back to classes. I have some super fun and creative projects planned. I can’t wait to see all of you again and to welcome the new students.

As always, feel free to call or email me with any questions.
