Bust of PALLAS

Duh on me!  My wonderfully  brilliant father pointed out to me that the correct quote from the Poe poem is …

Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door—

            Perched, and sat, and nothing more.

The funny thing is when I searched online under the “bust of Paris” LOTS of images came up.  Apparently it’s a common mistake (among the ill-informed).  The good news is my Dad caught it before the my pieces arrived at that show {yes, they all got in!} so I could correct the mistake and not appear to be too much of an idiot.

Thanks, Pa!

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.
