Who is Connie
Planning a Road Trip through the western states
for Spring 2011 – to visit friends & family, and to promote myself, my
arts, home-trunk shows and my new website in Arizona; Southern & Northern California; Oregon;
Washington; & possibly Colorado. Interested in hosting a Home-Trunk Show?
SF was my comfort & home for 25 years and it’s my true ‘home town’ – considering I spent the majority of my adult life there. My interest in glass arts began in San Francisco with a stained glass class in 1980. It started as means of stress reduction from my design job, and grew to a passion for all glass forms. In 1985 fusing was added to my techniques at the Sharon Art Studio, a division of SF Park & Rec. Sharon Art Studio became a major part of my life for many years: for training, inspiration & development; and as an assistant & instructor.
Took advantage of the many classes & materials available in the Bay Area glass arts: glass blowing, bead making, design, & painting on glass. It was an amazing time of growth.
An interest and honoring of the many paths of spirituality
developed during this time as well, and continues to this day. My core belief: The Truth is One, the Paths are Many!
I’ve participated in many art shows and galleries in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Taos, and participating the NM State Fair. I have been a member of various cooperative galleries: Sandia Man Gallery – Sandia Park; Turquoise Trail Gallery – Cedar Crest; Spirit in Art – Madrid; and Brown Cow - ABQ.
As my ‘day job’ I was an Ad Sales Representative for albuquerqueARTS magazine since 2005, which offered the opportunity to interact
with the local arts community directly.
Helping galleries, museums, performing venues, and artists effectively
promote themselves gave me a wonderful feeling of satisfaction – the benefits
come full circle from the artist to the client.
Promoting the Arts in Albuquerque is important - but I found it took too
much time away from my creative process.
Which brings me back to the Present! A Time for New Adventures!
