Hello Art-loving Friends,
I am really excited to invite you all to my home THIS WEEKEND for The Evergreen Open Doors Studio Tour. I've not had the opportunity for a home studio tour since well before the pandemic in 2018, so I am extra happy to participate this year. I've got a sneak peak in the photos below of my studio, and I'll have all my artwork on display, and my art studio will be full of artwork in process. My originals and prints will be for sale, with some bargain bins of things that just have to go like, scratch and dent, overstock, and irregulars. I'll be taking orders for commission artwork, and I'll have appetizers and herbal iced tea + wine on hand. As you park on the street and walk up the driveway, there will be signs to the hiking path, you are welcome to take self-guided tours to the tree house and back yard as well. Come see why Evergreen has been the muse on my shoulder these past six years. I hope you get to explore this little 2 acer plot of mine and hear why this house is a formidable character in my artistic story.
You can make a weekend out of it, as I'm number 18 of 26 on the home tour this year, so download the tour guidebook with maps and directions to each artist's home. I encourage you to visit other artist studios and I am really honored to live in a community that has so many talented artisans. I hope it can be a great weekend for you to take home some early holiday gifts for your loved ones, or for yourself (you deserve it!). There's also a fabulous Artist Reception this Friday night that you are invited too. Here are the details:

From North Turkey Creek Rd & Kilimanjaro Drive: Go 1.6 mi on Kilimanjaro. Left onto Olympus Dr., go .5 mi to a sharp right onto Annapurna Dr. I'm the 2nd driveway on the right. My mailbox says LEIDEL and atop it is our friendly wooden owl sculpture (named Hoots McGoots) who will greet you. Please park on the street and walk up the driveway, or either side of our slightly overgrown, circular path around our property. All paths lead into the garage-turned-gallery space, with my art studio indoors through the garage doors.
I hope to see you here at the house this weekend!
