Prehistory, Time & Space and/or How I Feel Connected to the Past and the Future

After a weeks break between our return from Scotland at the end of June, we were in the Tyler studio all week to complete our projects. I love it when a plan comes together and it was refreshing to be able to just stay in the studio all day without the distraction of other classes. […]

Edinburgh- Up Close and Personal

Our time in the enchanted highlands was certainly beautiful, but it was soon time to move on to the final leg of our UK odyssey, Edinburgh. We piled into the vans and spent most of the day returning to Glasgow, collected the rest of our luggage and hopped on a bus for the hour or […]

The Scottish Highlands

I started reading Outlander by Diana Gabaldon about 2002 on the recommendation of one of my friends. I was completely immersed and now along with Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, the Outlander books are my go-to books to re-read at the end of the day when I don’t have the brain space to […]

The rest of the story- Scotland

What happened? It’s August! So last we heard from our heroine, we had just spent a day outside London visiting the ancient sites in Bath, Avebury and Stonehenge in June. Then what happened? You see unlike my 2013 semester abroad in Rome, the UK Metals Workshop was a non-stop immersion into my discipline. No time […]

Junior Year at Tyler- Part II

The Spring semester was all metals all the time for my studio classes. Junior Metals, Advanced CAD and Production Processes were enough to keep me very busy as well as two other classes, part of an art history class on Modern Craft and a Race Gen-ed. We received both projects in metals in the first […]

My Full Fall Semester

Another rocking semester at Tyler School of Art comes to a close. I’ve been swamped since the semester ended in early December, but I wanted to put out a summary before I’m whisked off into the next adventure. I took three studio courses and two gen eds. One of the GenEds was Intellectual Heritage II. […]

Foundation Year Wrap Up

It’s hard to believe I’ve only done about two posts on here in the last year, but sometimes that is the way life rolls. The semester is over and I have actually completed my Foundation year at Tyler School of Art. That’s freshman year for you folks who don’t know about art school. It was […]

What’s in a name?

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, right? Recently much to my amazement, but not that of my friends, I was accepted into Temple University’s Tyler School of Art. My application process was complicated by the fact that I actually attended Temple in 1984. I was a Music Major in the College […]
