Gear Up for Art!
The 43rd Annual SDP International Conference & Expo
Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, Illinois
May 11-16, 2015

chrishaughey_smSDP is proud to announce that Chris Haughey of Urbana, Ohio will be the 2015 Conference Artist!

Chris’s wonderful use of color and whimsy, combined with a touch of Steampunk, exemplifies next year’s theme—Gear Up for Art!

Chris is an artist and designer, and is owner of Cupboard Distributing and creator of Chris Haughey Designs. She will be joining us at Conference, and will host a Special Event class on Monday, May 11, during which she will introduce attendees to her mixed-media techniques.

More details coming soon!
