Food For Thought, is debuting at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky from April 10-July 8.

From there it will go to the 2015 Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, U.K.

Then on to:

The Knitting & Stitching Show, Alexandra Palace, London, October 7-11, 2015
The Knitting & Stitching Show, Dublin, Ireland, November 12-15, 2015
The Knitting & Stitching Show, Harrogate, November 26-29, 2015

For all of my firm beliefs in the politics of food and that I stand vigorously in support of ridding the world of carcinogenic Monsanto products, I submitted a politics free playful piece!  But it does express both my love of food and art!

My quilt will go places that I’ve never been and will likely never get to see.

If you go here, you can see a selection of other pieces of textile art in the exhibit – it’s quite diverse and fun to see them all.  Click on the images to see them in a larger format where you can see them in  more detail!

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

One thought on “Food for Thought Premieres this month!

  1. I’ve had my copy of the catalogue for some time now and am looking forward to seeing the exhibition in the UK. Interesting to see that very few of the pieces selected addressed food issues.
