Be the change you want to see in the world. -Gandhi

For the past 10 years or so, I have spent these glorious, change of season weekends of September in Milwaukee, Rockford, and Peoria.

We artists come to town like a gypsy caravan (or circus!). Like many cities across the country, you welcome us with open hearts (thank you!).

It is amazing to see familiar faces year after year, in the volunteers and collectors. We share stories of personal and local happenings and I get feedback about my work, and many pieces find new homes.

It is gratifying to meet new viewers, curious and generous. Year after year we meet, and every time is different.
