Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center

Humor MeI made it!  Both my “Bruce GLee” and “Alfred and The Byrds” made it into the Humor Me show at the Annmarie Sculpture Garden and Arts Center.

I am so excited – of course now I have to finish them… 🙂

The center is located south of DC, but still in Maryland (Solomons, MD).  gardendirectionalmap If any of you are in the area,  the show runs from October 18 – January 12.  Stop in and get your picture taken next to my pieces [tell them I said it was fine 😉 ] and I’ll post it here.

Here’s one more look at my all time favorite piece…

I have always loved the process of transforming pieces of fabric into quilts. For years I collected scraps, just to be sure I'd have the right piece for the project at hand. Eventually, as my skills progressed, my hobby grew into art. I moved from simple quits, to 'landscape quilting' and then eventually onto portrait work. I am new to the art field and am self-taught, learning from my mistakes as well as from my successes. I create my images using only fabric and thread. I remain true to this limitation for two reasons; first, I love the challenge of finding new ways to depict ever more challenging subjects. Second, fabric work remains my true love. I enjoy the hunt for fabrics; where other artists might blend oil paints, I love finding that perfect shade or pattern for a specific need. I refer to my style as "gestalt impressionism" for one needs to take a step back from my pieces to get the whole picture. My view point changes by what is influencing me at the time. Recently I've begun to focus on the journey of the individual. I enjoy working on portraits of people whom I feel have lead interesting lives.
