Join Me for a Final Cup of Coffee

Please Join Us

After 3 years in Kuwait, the time for me to leave is coming soon.  I am doing one more showing of my artwork before I leave for the summer.  Please join me & my friend Sylvette Moujaes, Product Development Manager of Press Designs, for a coffee & showing of our work on June 5 9am - 12pm in Salmyia.  Sylvette will have new stationary items in her Press Designs line.  I love her products - they make perfect gifts from Kuwait.  There are designs inspired by Kuwait & everything is made here in Kuwait by recycled/repurposed materials from their sister company.

I'll have my vintage inspired jewelry, new mixed media canvases & limited edition photographs I have taken during my time here in Kuwait.  It's the first time I'll be selling my photographs in a public forum.  I'm wondering why it took me so long to have them printed in larger scale & matted.  I'm quite happy with the final product.

I hope you will join us on Tuesday for some coffee, finger foods & good company.
