    I create from a very authentic place by staying true to my imagination. Creativity is endless for me. Like breathing I simply must do it. My art always has layers filled with hope, cheerfulness, and wonder.

On June 11, 2021, Kentucky lifted all mandates regarding Covid precautions that would impact our workshops at Ephemera Paducah.

What that means is, those who are not fully vaccinated are strongly encouraged to wear a mask during the workshop while inside. Those who are more comfortable wearing a mask if vaccinated may certainly do so. However, precautions such as masks/attestation of vaccination status, etc. are no longer required for this workshop. 

Additionally, this workshop is a GO! We are good to go with the original schedule and class size. 

My staff and I are fully vaccinated. We have hand sanitizer, soap, and clean shared supplies as well as clean the studio each evening of your workshop. We will also continue to be mindful of social distance in classes and use technology so that demonstrations are projected eliminating the need to hover around a table to see what’s going on!

We are so looking forward to seeing you at an in-person workshop this year!
