Etsy Blog Feature

Last week something exciting happened. Etsy wrote a feature about my work and my studio – you can read the post here. It was a great (and a little bit scary) experience and a perfect excuse to clean up the studio. I’d like to say a big thank you to Julie Schneider from Etsy for giving me this opportunity and to Erin Little for her awesome photos. Below are a few of the photos – and there are a bunch more in the article over at Etsy.

a little late summer inspiration

thuya garden IMG_0062 IMG_0060 IMG_0061

i love to visit thuya garden in early september. it refills my creative well every single time. (that little hummingbird kept dive-bombing me last night. it was confusing for both of us.)

new show at college of the atlantic

i’ve been quiet here the past few months, because i’ve spent all last winter and spring getting ready for a new show that opens tonight at college of the atlantic’s ethel blum gallery. it’s the largest show i’ve ever done, consisting of 24 original framed papercuttings that will be for sale, as well as 100+ sail cloth flags that i cut on my laser cutter that are strung through the gallery.  jjm_postcard_front_small

i’m honored and excited to have been asked to have a show in the beautiful space. there’s an opening reception tonight from 5:30-7:30, and a few other events later in the summer. it will be up through september 12th. if you’re in bar harbor this summer, i hope you’ll stop by. the gallery is open 11-4 monday through saturday excluding major holidays.

a shot of the gallery almost ready for tonight's opening.

working with fabric

i recently spent an inspiring weekend back at haystack, this time in the fiber studio with textile artist susie brandt and a wonderful group of classmates. i hadn’t sewn in about three years, and had never considered myself particularly handy with a sewing machine, but susie taught us about the craftsmanship of risk, a phrase that has stuck with me this month. i sewed a small quilt using the improvisational piecing method she taught us, using a bunch of fabric from here and there, including some of my own designs and some of the kids’ favorite old clothes – and i had SO MUCH FUN. i predict more sewing in my future.
