2016 was a year of travel and numerous workshops around the country. I closed out my presence at La Mesa of Santa FE in New Mexico and I am essentially carving a few things around the house and staying open to commissions.

I have watched Susan Jane Hall and Julianne Caulderon "jynja" stick with carving concrete and it is clear to me that they are the top two women wet carved concrete sculptors in the country. There work is imaginative and refined. Anyone wishing to learn the technique, other than my workshops, should seek them out.

Now most of my effort and time is devoted to the workshops.

Workshops 2017

Updated February 13, 2017

I head west around Memorial Day and intend on updating any new listings or changes to the schedule before I leave.

  • June 2 – 4, Fort Walton Beach, FL – Art and Design Society
    It has been a while but this will be my third workshop at ADSO.
  • June 30 – July 2, Alpine, CA – Alpine Skies Studio
    Dave Henderson is a noted sand sculptor. We tried a workshop two years ago but it did not make. Once again we are giving it a go. This will be my first time with a workshop in SoCal and perhaps my only time as it is so far flung from my typical workshop routes. Sign up and join in on the fun.
  • July 14 – 16, Mendocino, CA – Mendocino Art Center
    It has been a number of years since my workshop at MAC. A few times I tried to reschedule but our dates never lined up. This year I'm happy to say the timing was right. It will be nice to be back on the north coast at this established institution.
  • July 28 – 30, Otis, OR – Sitka Center for Art and Ecology
    I visited Sitka Center a few years ago and I am delighted to be teaching at this venerable place.
  • August – probably somewhere in Seattle
  • TBA in the Fall, Chicago, IL – Chicago Mosaic School
    CMS has become an annual location in the mid-west for my workshop.
  • October or November – perhaps the northeast
Other Concrete in 2017
  • Ongoing scheduling throughout 2017 – Spokane, WA
    My dear friend Susan Jane Hall is one of the few people I know that has been carving for many years. I assisted her on a concrete public art project in Nashville, TN and we have carved together many times. For a number of years now she has been teaching workshops at her studio in the Northwest.
