Top Row: wet felted hollow forms, 3"x5" Bottom Row: hand stitched wool appliqué mounted on wood blocks, 4"x6" In order from left to right: Night, Lineage, Bateau, Assist, Red Hot
Night is about being connected to the universe. Stand in your yard in bare feet grounded to the earth and look up at the sky. When you look at the stars you are connecting with your soul.
Shown in Hopelessly Hopeful at the Gray Gallery, Philadelphia, PA 2017
Lineage relates to family. Who is your family? Where do you come from? Where do you belong?
We're all in the same boat. Everywhere in the world people want their children and loved ones to be happy, to be safe, and to have what they need.
"It's complicated." Sometimes we disagree and have to hash it out. Contrasting options exist, but it is possible to listen and communicate. Feel free to discuss.
