Lucky are we who got to visit the studio of Adam Arnold as part of the Portland Art Museum’s Fashion Tour. In keeping with the Italian Style show (currently on exhibit and not to be missed!) Maestro Arnold was part of the tour to illustrate the art of the handmade as it is living and thriving in downtown Portland.


It was a rare treat to be with an artist so dedicated to creating bespoke clothing in an era of selfies and off the rack.


He even made us cookies to go with our perfect little cups of tea.

Even the jam was handmade!

So now my bucket list includes a custom made garment from Adam Arnold.

Did you know that on the day Ellis Island opened on January 1, 1892, an Irish girl named Annie Moore became the very first person processed through what became the world-famous immigration center.

Please take a moment to visit the National Women’s History Museum.

Not everything translates to a switchplate or towel…sometimes we just have to do things for fun.

But the Time Faces image I created for the New Year was just begging to get transformed into something….
