Honoring an Ending and New Beginnings:
At 5 am April 6, I turned off the lights for the last time to an 11 year chapter of working in my  amazing Superior WI studio.
It h
as been an awesome 11 years building the arts in Superior, inviting you in, and growing my work to today's mission of using recycled and reclaimed materials to make 'wings'... via textiles and art to explore roots-based, nature inspired, sustainable, interconnected vision to create social and personal change within ourselves and community.
Thank you for so beautifully being part of it!!!

The new studio is located on the second floor of the AJ Atwater Studio in Lakeside Duluth.
It offers an experiment in collaboration. It is an offering of creative spirit. What happens when 2 professional artists in 2 different mediums work in individual spaces, in the creative juju of each others energy for up to 1 year?
Studio is open by appointment.
