fab interview link+ knitting cruise!

I am so honored to be interviewed on Kym's blog Away from The Edge this week! Go take a read.

Me, working in June, on a shoot for the Hudson Valley Textile Project. Photocredit to Catherine Clark from Brooklyn General.

Kym asked such good questions.  I've been following her blog and occasionally messaging back and forth with her for I feel like we know each other in real life . After reading the interview, I have to remind myself we weren't sitting in the same room.  Doing these interviews is a lot of work so I truly appreciate it . And  hope she does mor.e of them   Maybe her other subjects won't be such Blabby McBlabsters :-)

Headshots at TNNA in PDX


So, how's your headshot situation?
I'll be making fresh narrative headshots by appointment at TNNA in Portland on February 1, 2 & 3.

Thanks to support from TNNA in setting up a temporary studio at the trade show venue, I'll be able to offer a rate much lower than I usually do--and we can work together to make a portrait that really is you.
 There are a limited number of time slots, please sign up in advance!  Sign up here

Bring /wear a project or product or prop. I'll have lighting and a choice of backdrops. And we will have fun. And I promise, you won't look like you are posing in a hotel room!
