Why Innovation Matters

What a nice surprise to open my Aug/Sept 2012 issue of American Craft magazine and see my work pictured there! Just click on the link above and you can read the article too!


Archeology Fragment #15 Enso Compassion 2011, 56 x 45"  
"Why Innovation Matters" is an interview by Monica Moses, editor in chief, with David Revere McFadden, one of the jurors of the Art Quilt Elements exhibition at the Wayne Art Center, and curator at the Museum of Art and design in NYC. This show was part of  Philadelphia's city wide event called Fiber Philly held bi-annually.

My work titled Archeology Fragment #15, Enso Compassion was juried into the show, and  received a Surface Design Award from the Surface Design Association. 

It joins two other award winners in the same article, Dianne Firth's Red Stones #2 which received the juror's choice award and Memories of Gombe by Mary Pal which received the Heartstrings Award. 
This piece was purchased at the show; three wonderful surprises!

    This image jumped out to jolt my reveries: Still life with bread, by the Cubist Georges Braque. Is art like this picture, as essential as bread and water, or should I say bread and wine?
