THANK YOU to everyone that came out to the opening of the show last night!

Stop by if you get a chance…..
New STUFF is happening in the Studio!
I am currently enrolled in a Quilt Making class at the Hyde Park Art Center through my participation in The Center Program this year.
I just finished my first sample piece, freshly washed and dried!
This gave me a wonderful opportunity to learn some of the different technical elements of putting together a quilt.
This process really resinated with me as I am constantly placing non-related objects together to explore the narrative that is revealed in the process.
Quilting provides a new way for me to connect the stories.
I have already started on the next piece…
It will be much larger and constructed completely with paper.
Please mark your calendar and join me May 9 & May 16

I am so excited to be participating in the Center Program at the Hyde Park Art Center.
Two weeks ago I decided to register for a quilting class to explore how working with a new medium might inform my creative process.
These are images from my first two classes. I have learned so much already and have so many questions!
I can’t wait to see how this will inspire my finial installation for the HPAC exhibition later this year.
