Big News!

I am a member of a new fiber art group, Fiber Art Alliance, and it promises to be a great group! The members are all fiber artists, but many are also mixed media artists, and their artwork represents a wide array of visions and techniques.

Our first exhibition is "Natural Lines" and features artwork that is inspired by the lines in nature. Each artist will create 3 pieces this year for this exhibition, and the first set of work is posted on our website now.

Coastal: Chesapeake Bay
21" x 15"

This piece is one of my newest works and is included in "Natural Lines". It is the first piece in a series of 3 pieces that are in remembrance of my Dad. Over the years, we took a lot of walks along the beach, picking up shells and stones, and we spent a lot of time sailing on the Chesapeake Bay in a wooden sailboat.

Coastal: Chesapeake Bay (detail)

This is a detail photo that shows the lettering at the top and the painted and stitched beach fence that runs through the middle of each piece. The lettering in each of the 3 pieces tells part of a story, about my time spent on the beach with my Dad. These are some of my most personal work, and I am thrilled with the final results.
