Updated 04/29/2019: I did a presentation earlier this month for SAZWA, the local woodturning club, on how to display your work. Next up, in May, I will be demonstrating winged bowls for the Bay Area Woodturners, as well as doing a presentation on inspiration and expression. In June, I will head to Prescott, Arizona, to give my presentation on inspiration and expression, talk about safety and design, and conduct a workshop on igniting creativity.

In September I will be heading to Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts for the second Women in Turning eXchange—this time as a facilitator. I joined the WIT Committee this year and am excited to be a part of all its activities, especially the eXchange. I’ve written two articles about last year’s eXchange: “Uproarious Reciprocation: The 2018 Women in Turning eXchange,” with Kathleen Frey Duncan, published in the February issue of American Woodturner, and “Abundant Imagination: A Case Study in Fostering Creativity,” forthcoming in the August issue.

Old news: In September 2012, I had a lathe accident that left me with little vision in my left eye and some lingering cognitive challenges. For details about the accident and my recovery, please click on the “Accident & recovery” link above; the saga begins with the post dated September 28, 2012). You can also read about it in an article I wrote for American Woodturner, called “Safety Matters: From the Eye of a Survivor” (published in June 2014; supplement available here).
