[New Orchid Gallery] Ahlene Welsh

Ahlene Welsh

I received a B.S. in Applied Art from Iowa State University in 1962
and a M.F.A. in Metalcrafts and Jewelry from the School for American
Craftsmen at Rochester Institute of Technology in 1964.

I taught art in a junior high school and in junior colleges for a
few years. I have worked in a home work space for about the last 45
years. Since 1985 I have worked almost daily in a studio we added to
our house. I am also a part-time weaver.

My jewelry has been represented in various shops and galleries in
Massachusetts and in Southern California. I participate in two or
three group shows in the area every year. I often receive
commissions from individuals, and occasionally from organizations.

Passion is contagious! Show us your passion, Show us your work!

I really enjoyed looking at your work. It’s all beautiful, but I
particularly love the “bird of paradise”! Such a clever thing
turning the Strelitzia (bird of paradise) plant into an actual bird!
I love the owl too.




I love the simple elegance of your designs! Thank you for sharing!
