Beyond Gender

Throw Back Thursday Quilt
This quilt addresses the need to go beyond the “Holy Father” concept to a new paradigm of a partnership model. We are saved in relationship. We enter the ark, two by two. Both sexes have their gifts and their spiritual assets. “Let us not waste time on petty issues. God is both male and female, mother and father, beyond gender we are all light.” Marianne Williamson
Cotton, plastic, rickrack, hand painted fabric, buttons, reflector, crystals, plastic babies, net, cyanotype and quilted.28”Wx45” 
Early Collage Quilt from 1999

League of NH Crafts's exhibit Living with Craft 2014

I have 2 works in the main building, Living with Crafts, at the Sunapee Fair. 
Inspired by quote from Anne Morrow Lindbergh, “ Only with Winter’s Patience can we bring the deep desired, long awaited Spring.” 
Playing with digital processes and dyeing fabrics led to this experiment with materials. It is somewhat translucent and when held to light, an inner collage is made visible. Metaphorically simulating the transitions we can make when we take the time, the patience, to know our interior self’s and respond.

the Back!

Working on a Digital Fiber piece for an upcoming show,
 I decided it need more contrast and punch,
 so I painted into it and the paint leaked to the back,
 intriguing! I like this!

Peaceful Dreams

Throw Back Thursday Quilt

Enchantment and fairy tales delight the dreams of my children in bed, covered by a miniature quilt, as they soar upward in appliquéd flowers of sequined space and quilted stars.
Dreams of PEACE by parents all over the world inspired this piece. Hand appliquéd, embroidered, and quilted. Cottons, sequins, 3-D stuffed face, Xerox transfer, and beaded.   44x52   1988
Best of Show Cocheco Quilt Guild 1989
