Hello! Welcome to my website!
It's been a busy year in the workshop...primarily custom commission pieces, so one of my New Year's resolutions is to update this website! I am so involved in the work that I forget this aspect!
Two new quilts....at least the tops!...Polka Dot Frida and African Wax Print Creativity (which arises from the dark pool of soul in one's center.
For our bookcase wall. I love working with Korhogo! The pieces are handmade from Cote D'Ivoire. I have a collection of these hard-to-find textiles and will be working on a few more in the coming months.
Magie Relph and Robert Irwin, two amazing people who are wonderful resources for African textiles, will be showing this banner in their newsletter--I am thrilled to be included.
They have also included two of my pieces is their book, African Wax Print, A Textile Journey. The book, published in the UK, is a wonderful history of these textiles.
One of my newer pieces, Tribal Heart. Although we seem to be divided upon "lines of color," in fact, I believe we are all the same on both sides of the "line." And our hearts beat as one, if we allow them...
A similar piece is "Perspective" in which figures are right side up and upside down, but both are considered....It seems important to be able to see from more than one perspective...
And my newest, still in the finishing stages...Vintage Medley, some of my oldest and favorite vintage African wax prints.
As always, I welcome the opportunity to create custom pieces to honor people, places, concepts, and subjects that are important to clients. If you have questions or comments, it's easy to reach me:
