  • In my mind…

    I apologize that I have not updated the website. My summer was busy and here I am in the middle of November. Today is the opening reception day for my solo exhibition Entrance to Indigo at Davis Art Gallery, 44 Portland Street, Worcester.

    Ways of maintaining business such as promoting has been changing so rapidly. Recently I have been trying to use Instagram & Facebook more since my son set up Apps on my iphone.

    Be honest with you, I don't know the best way to announce the latest news of the studio. People in my email list get a seasonal e-newsletter which includes events and special workshops. That goes to current and former students. If you want to be subscriber, please let me know.

    People who are not in the list gets info via Instagram & Facebook. Then there are others who don't use the social media. I have to be aware to update my website more often.

    Because I was pretty concentrated on my show, I decided not to attend stART at the station this year. I might not be able to set up holiday market because I am burn out. I will take this time to recharge and make new strategy for next year. I hope you a wonderful holiday season. I appreciate your generous continuous support in 2017.
