Rust's Roycroft Renaissance


I am extremely honored and thrilled to be able to announce that I have been accepted as a Roycroft Renaissance Artisan.  I knew I wanted to be a part of this family of artists after seeing all of the high quality work bearing the historic Roycroft mark, while visiting the 31st National Arts & Crafts Conference in Asheville, North Carolina last February.  I was so overwhelmed by all of the encouragement I received from my fellow artists to pursue this adventure.  I have never met such a supportive and humble group of genuine individuals, and knew I wanted to be a part of this group.  This experience has meant a lot, hearing the encouragement and excitement from my mother, brother and friends, but only wish my dad could have experienced this with me, as well.

Loving that Yosemite Valley View

"WOW, my dad surprised us with a wedding gift of Radiant Yosemite Valley and we absolutely loved it. I immediately made my husband hang it up above our fireplace, where it looks truly spectacular! Just WOW!"

Thank you for sharing a photo of my artwork so prominently displayed above the fireplace in your home.  I love receiving these snapshots and sharing them with my viewers.

I am honored that my work was chosen to be an expression of love from a father to his daughter to commemorate her marriage.  It is truly rewarding to see others enjoying the work that I have poured my myself into creating.
