When Trees Speak!

It is so wonderful to be back.  Have been off sharing my art in solo exhibitions, in group shows and more.  In addition, I’ve just returned to New York after garnering a fabulous art scholarship in the highly acclaimed SAVVY ARTS CHALLENGE at the University of South Carolina.  This wonderful program brought 100 artists in from around the country to assist businesses address challenges using art.  What a fabulous adventure.  My group was assigned a farm.  I’ll share more about that experience in my next post.

In the meantime, I have been delving deeper into my work focused on trees.  I am extremely focused on bring the visual narrative of cherishing trees into everyday life.  The shift in  our environment, climate change, the lost of trees due to fires or plain old destruction for economics demand our attention.  I simply wish to revisit my focus on trees and ask you to take a moment to address your intention, attention, compassion and empathy towards a major segment vital to the existence of humanity.

When I crochet, it is as if my needle and thread begin to talk, thus my tagline:  “Let the yarn speak!”

When Art Makes Home, A Sweet, Home – “Praise”

Art carries a power… one which empowers you, inspires you and your home.  Whenever I complete a piece I always intend it to be adopted into a space which sparks conversation, peace and creates an air of authenticity.

I love the power of my latest work to enable a deep probing into self and honor of our elders.  Ahh, there is, indeed, power of art to make a home, truly a sweet home of warmth, embrace and love.

What a grand delight to have my work honored throughout the year.  This week I received a citation merit from New York State Assemblyman Anthony U’roso.  It was such a grand affair hosted by the Manhasset Library Art Gallery in Long Island, New York.  Here are photo highlights:
