This one was a long time in the making. I have to say, I love when I can sit and do hand embroidery. This one is such a free flow recording of mark making  left to the Muses devices. I’d say it’s one of those pieces of art that is best described as emotional expression and it may actually be a fairly accurate description of a good part of my personal internal struggle as my art practice develops. I can only see that now that it’s done.


I can’t honestly say that the issues have been entirely resolved but then again, are they ever? But there is some sense of direction taking place and for that, I am happy and looking forward!

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.
