I believe that being a member of a guild you get out as much as you put in. You learn through active participation. Our guild has been through many changes, but it is still strong and will continue to morph through new members and new ideas always making us grow. You also gain friendship and comradery by having a ‘like’ interest plus someone to help you out when you can’t figure it out yourself.

I’m always changing and continue to transform my art by gaining new skills and honing already acquired ones. Now is a new adventure for me as I move from a glass artist to a multi-medium artist. I will still fuse and lampwork glass, but it will be reduced while my metal work will intertwine and becoming one with my glass. I’m excited for my new adventure because I love integrating the two mediums together. See more of Mitzi’s work in the Member’s Gallery or at her store https://mitzikart.com/store
