Belgium Curator Talk

May 27, 2019

Guillaume Desanges speaking during a curator talk about two of my pieces hung in the show, “Matters of Concern”. I wish I could have heard what he had to say! The exhibit is up until July 6th at La Verriere gallery in Brussels.

The Possibilities are Endless

April 19, 2019

Finally finished! It’s a larger piece than usual for me but I really loved the process of working on this (not always the case!). The creating flowed and the niggling voice of self doubt stayed quiet.

Of the World

October 29, 2017

Of the world 72

This new piece evolved from a large charcoal sketch drawn during  a life drawing class to this layered exploration of our interconnectedness with the world. My fascination with our relationship with billions of microbial fellow travelers was a huge influence! Again, I highly recommend the book, I Contain Multitudes by Ed Yong.

Doing a more figurative piece is a new stretch for me. I’d welcome some feedback!

My artist talk video

June 15, 2017

In conjunction with my solo show last fall at Mitchell-Giddings FIne Art gallery, I gave an artist talk jointly with fellow fiber artist, Jackie Abrams. If you’re interested, here’s a link to the full talk. I cover a lot of ground! Including my inspiration, materials and techniques.

Boy, is it weird to watch myself!

Life Drawing

January 26, 2017

This fall in order to try to stretch my creative chops, I took a semester long Life Drawing class. The last time I did this was a hundred years ago in college and it took some time to get used to the messiness and loveliness of working with charcoal again. Each week we had a different model, all shapes and sizes and drew for over 2 hours.

I loved it. I’d leave each class covered in charcoal dust. I do think it was helpful for me to do something away from fabric and get back to looking and drawing again.

I have some ideas brewing on how to integrate elements of these drawings into my next fiber piece…we’ll see.

Hand/Eye magazine featured artist

December 2, 2016

I was contacted by Rebeca Schiller, editor of visually sumptious Hand/Eye magazine to be interviewed for an article titled “Invented Biology”about my art. I think she did a really good job of coherently conveying why and what I do from my oftentimes meandering answers. I’m grateful for this opportunity. I encourage you to check it out as well as taking a look at this beautiful, interesting online publication.

Small ones-in progress

October 15, 2016

I’m  digging through my stash, rediscovering some buried pieces of lovely silk I dyed and putting together a group of little creations. These 10″ x 10″ pieces will be mounted onto 12″ square black gallery wrapped canvas. I’m hoping to create at least eight and they all will be available at the upcoming Brattleboro West Arts annual first weekend of December show.More on that later!

Working at such a small scale gives me space to play with new ideas. Like did you know that embroidery thread can be curled on the edge of a scissor blade -like ribbon on a present??
