ANIMALS AND THEIR HUMANS

In stressful times, we seek places of sanctuary and nourishment. We call on our roots for courage to sustain ourselves as we move through adversity and stand in our truths. From many years of work, I’ve gathered eight thread-on-fabric pieces in which I’ve focused on the relationships we have with our animal companions.

They are reproduced as high-resolution prints using acid-free matte paper and pigmented inks. After printing, dating and signing, the finished prints are rolled and mailed in heavy-duty tubes for safe shipping. Visit the Prints page for details and browse thirty images that also include still life, elders, and hands.

“Everyday Mermaid” Book Prototype is Complete
October 2015

California poet and friend Christina Isobel and I have been working on our book collaboration for several years. In responding visually to her poetry, I discovered a vibrant language of symbolic abstraction. Here across my studio wall, like a scroll, are my fabric panels overlaid with Christina’s poems. All 34 full spreads were then scanned, printed, trimmed, folded, and hand-built into a prototype of the book. We are looking for a publisher.
