One of my favorite things is making small work . . .  

 

Sometimes I am trying out a new technique. Sometimes I am working out a design for a larger piece. Sometimes I just want to use a favorite piece of fabric, or bit ephemera that is too small for anything larger, but too special not to use. Sometimes I'm just in the mood to work on something that I can finish soon or gives me a rest from an intense project. Whichever of these it might be, I truly love these small works. Some I keep for myself, some I am happy to share. I finish them in different ways, but each is ready to hang. Be sure to pay close attention to their size. Many are very small, which is not always apparent as you see them on your monitor.

Chairs and such

I am a collector of chairs, such a wonderful combination of design and function. Each has a personality of its own! With these I experimented with making simple wire hangers. I like hanging them on a tiny black nail.

Everyday Saints

Based on my fascination with Latin American Santos art, I create icons of everyday saints—the women among us who bring goodness, kindness and joy to our everyday lives. These start with my screen-printed "saint"and include many of my special bits of saved textiles, threads, beads, buttons and other collected treasures. This is an ongoing series.
