My favorite thing about Global Trade is the opportunity to meet incredibly creative people.
My training in industrial, packaging and graphic design was tempered with the great influence of countless semesters crossing campus, to engage in classes taught by the masters at the School of American Craftsmen. The observation, support and advice of grad students from around the world have clearly influenced my design sense and understanding of mixed medium. I am continually inspired by the world’s craftsmen. YouTube videos of ancient process, tools and techniques are a never ending source for an unexpected twist to adapt into my next work.
I am a big fan of ETSY and Pinterest platforms because they provide the infrastructure and business tools to reach a worldwide market place, connect me with products and services that are not available in my area and support other entrepreneurial artists and makers like me.
For all of you that know the artist in me, you will be able to see my work from the
Gallery tab. The new studio is under construction and “Oh, you know I have a grand plan!”. John and I are currently working on the multi-purpose training table/work space to accommodate up to six student work spaces. We are planning to have the first phase of the studio completed in time for fall classes!
