Welcome to The Phoenix Files!

This blog is a collection of papers and how-to articles I have written, as well as my travel journals and general announcements. Scholarly works from "The Library" on my old website, are labeled here as "Historica Tractatu." 

My travels have had heavy influence on my work and are the 'back story' behind many of my designs. Some of my older journals are revised from the original, and most link to photo albums on Facebook.  

Arts North Studio Tour Sept 10-11

Wow, where did the summer go???  

Time to change gears, in every manner of the word : )

Steams and  wearable gardens will be among the artisan handcrafts for sale at the Arts North Studio Tour this weekend. Try one on for size at Design One Ltd. (Studio #4 on your map). 

I will be one of five friendly and fantastic artists at this site.  A total of ten studios are hosting nearly 30 artisans this year, working in a very wide variety of mediums.  Grab a map and take the tour, and immerse yourself in delightful, high quality handcrafts by local makers and creators.
