November News Flash
October was a wonderfully exciting month! Just a week ago, on the 23rd, I was honored with the Duluth Depot Foundation’s 2013 Artist of the Year award!

The dates have been set for my solo exhibition at the Burnet Gallery at the Le Meridien Chambers hotel in Minneapolis. The opening will occur on January 10, 2014 with the exhibition continuing through March 2. Save the date for this exciting event and watch for more news as January nears. I hope you will join me!
The finishing touches have been made on my latest heart necklace! It will be unveiled this holiday season at Security Jewelers. The limited edition necklace can be purchased at Security Jewelers in Duluth and through my website and Facebook pages. Watch my Facebook & Twitter for pre-order information!
Also this past month, the Aveda congress was held at the Minneapolis convention center. The congress, a bi-annual event which aims to inspire and educate stylists with technical and creative presentations, was attended by over 4000 stylists from all over the world. Presented at the congress was a short video produced by Juut SalonSpa in which I am featured (below) discussing the importance of color in their industry.
