It’s always such an adventure to visit MADE Art Boutique. It’s really a mainstay in the Phoenix Art District, and full of the most unique and beautiful things made by Phoenix artists! Today I dropped off a few art prints from my bird series that will be sold in the shop!


I was greeted by Sally, who is like a ray of sunshine inside the tiny boutique full of everything from jewelry, ceramics, art prints, shirts, cards, and things with a Phoenix theme. I purchased a small incense burner that had serious sentimental value to me.  And even though my heart really still belongs to Michigan, I may have to go back and get the Phoenix map art (by Dry Desert Design) or the Phoenix mug (by Crooked Tree), because, like all good design, both of these pieces just make me HAPPY!



I was recently in Vegas for the Las Vegas Market. On my last day there I decided to venture into the unknown and took the city bus to the Arts District. I was lost for a few blocks, but when I figured out where I was going…WOW, what a great treat! It doesn’t seem like many people I talk to know about the area, and it’s definitely worth exploring! The district itself is called 18b (for 18 blocks) Art District. I spent a long time wandering through The Arts Factory, which is a series of artists studios, a yoga studio, and some dining options.  The art was all unique and amazing!  I even got a personalized tour from Dawn, a kind and welcoming artist in residence.  Had I not been exhausted from walking (literally) 17 miles over the past few days, I would’ve visited many more places. Next time! Art below (left) by Dray and (right) by Kat Taz 

Here’s some links to check out! It’s really a must see! The Arts Factory link, The Downtown Arts District Link,and the Cornish pasty which is right across the street and has the BEST vegetarian pastys (veggie rosemary chicken, yum)  and a huge selection of craft beer!  Next time you’re in Vegas, explore!
