Needle Lace

Undulating needle lace fabric I made from snippets of fabric, tulle, ribbon, yarn, threads, unspun silk and wool and anything else I could find around the studio in hot reds!  The new fabric is 16" x 23" but has been dried and stitched in gentle waves so that it is now displayed at 16" x 16" and about an inch deep in places.  This is a detail shot.

Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum Here I Come!

Gyres 10 has just been juried into the Evolutions exhibit in Golden, Colorado.  The show will be up from January 23 - April 22, 2017.   I stitched fabric onto the canvas substrate so that it pops off the surface then HEAVILY painted the piece.  It is one from my Gyres series which deals with the ever-expanding swirling Garbage Patches in our oceans.

Amulets and Other Small Work at Hagafen Cellars

Wonderful opening celebration on Nov. 6 at Hagafen Cellars in Napa.  Beautiful autumn day, lots of happy imbibers and art appreciators.    There are 23 pieces of my work up in the Barrel Building; they will remain into March.     Note my helper:  Aidan, my LYFT driver who jumped out of his car and spent an hour making the whole process efficient and fun!

Lascaux '21

My Urban Graffiti quilt, based on images from a skate park in London, a food truck on the Big Island of Hawaii and screens I made myself, is one of 15 juried into a Quilts on the Wall show now up at the South Bay Contemporary Gallery in San Pedro, CA.   Up till Nov. 26.  Give them a call before showing up as their hours vary.
