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.

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.

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!
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.
