I always like to keep my work close to my human nature to fail, to fall apart, and to rise from humble beginnings. For this, I love the jute fibers of burlap bags and scraps of old canvas or mattress ticking. The workhorses of home textiles. I'm working on several new series in this form #peacenotpieces. One is titled Be-Attitudes, Seven meditations on compassion; one is on prayer knots based on the idea of desert fathers tying knots instead of using prayer beads. What is art except something we make that means something else, a reminder.
