I am just thrilled........................

that I've been chosen by Early American Life magazine to join the distinguished group of craftspeople listed in the 2008 Directory of Traditional American Crafts Holiday issue. I was doubly pleased to be listed in two areas.... SANTAS and OTHER HOLIDAYS.

Being listed in the Directory is an honor bestowed on a handful of artisans who work in traditional media, styles, and crafts, an award that singles out their work as the best now produced in America today.

The artists are selected by a jury of museum curators, collectors, dealers, and respected authors. You can read more about it here: Early American Life Directory.
The Christmas Directory issue will be available on the newsstands September 16th.
