I dream and those dreams become art. I have been printmaking and making quilt art for almost 30 years, working in embroidery for even longer, and exploring images of women since birth. I let memories, good and bad, reconcile with pen and paper; these days, they translate into the texture of fabric, beads, embroidery, paint, and pen. I trust my subconscious ability to reconcile each object within the whole. Some work is personal, based on what happens around me. Recently, more work is political, focusing on women’s rights, climate change, gun control, and other issues that invade my brain.
