A souvenir is a memento of a time and place, so surely, all things we chose to surround ourselves with are souvenirs. I like the irreverence of putting them on pedestals, thus making them icons.…

Nature, various geographies and cultivated landscapes engage my senses, my mind, my spirit.  These varied and accumulated encounters over a lifetime continue to transform me, describing journey, creating narrative. In my visual reflections, I enjoy the juxtaposition of varying scales, often considering the grand and the minute simultaneously.  Likewise, naming the moment calls to mind…

I fell into the quilting/fabric world quite by accident. In 2012, a friend shared with me that she was making a quilt.  I asked her, “What do you mean, making a quilt?” She took me to her house, and that….was that.  I’m so far down that rabbit hole, and I have no desire to get…

In preparation for…

Language, text, and poetry are…
