Cecily Luise Allen
Bloomington, IN. USA

I’m in love with colour and aspire to become an accomplished
enamelist some day. I have set up my own home studio and am slowly
acquiring things past the most basic of stuff, although I have my
own kiln now. No longer affiliated with a university, I’m interested
in interacting with a community of like-minded folk that can
inspire, critique and problem-solve with me as I figure out where
I’m heading in the world of jewelry. I love small things with lots of
details. My brain dislikes blunt geometric shapes and tends to get
lost in the glowing colour enamels can produce.

I’m part of my first and probably only art show this year in just a
two weeks and I am the only artist displaying jewelry. I’m curious
to see where things will go from there. I’m also turning 30 on that
same day and I’m excited to celebrate it with a gallery show.
