In case you missed it - the reason for my blog absence has been due to an upcoming relocation from NJ to NC next month. We started thinking about this last year when my husband took a new job, sort of based in NC. After many conversations, we took a trip in March to check out the Chapel Hill / Durham area and decided to go for it. Our house went on the market in April, we accepted an offer soon after, and then headed south in May to buy a home. Last week we closed on both homes and are officially homeowners in Durham, NC.
With this crazy real estate market, everything has moved so quickly, and we are headed down south the 2nd of July. I hosted a Y(ART)D SHOW in my home a few weeks ago that availed many lucky collectors the chance to purchase some amazing works of art. Now, I'm cleaning out my studio and I've decided so many supplies will not be coming with me. But, they are really good supplies that I've invested in over time. So, if you're in the NJ area - have a look, purchase anything that looks good and we can arrange pick up at my home in West Orange.
MUST pick up by Monday, June 28th. If I have time and determine that more items are worth selling, I'll update the products in my shop. You can purchase below or browse the online shop.

Jennie Traill Schaeffer
Deemed the Kitchen God's Artist by NJ Savvy Living for my sainted appliances, I'm now known more for my vibrant, meditational paintings of chairs set surprisingly in landscapes. Since relocating to NC from NJ, mothering my two sons, and caring for our rescue pup, Cider, took the lead. Now, that my Durham home studio is renovated it's open again for virtual art coaching and the resumption of my personal art and commissions. The work I make is inspired by my joy of teaching, exploring nature, and traveling. On The Teaching Artist Blog, I share my approach to teaching and educate my readers about my creative process.
