New York’s THE Spot for Art Resources

I’m a native New Yorker and spoiled to the tee when it comes to being able to secure anything I want.  As an artist, I am simply loving it.

I just garbled up some great fabric for forthcoming projects this year.  I am in heaven!  Here’s what I got:

Loving the fabric which I use on wood serving as the foundation for my crocheted works.  Those tassels, hey, yah never know where or how they will show up.  Simply inspired right about now.

Luv Yah,

It’s been a moment since my last share with you. I have been taking care of mom. In previous posts I shared how she had become a quadraplegic. She eventually developed additional health complications which required my full attention. Such care for quadralegic–that’s paralysis of all limbs–does not come with a manual, thus, my absence from here.

But…thru it all, my devotion to my art continued. It’s ease of transport, my crochet needle and yarn, allowed me to engaged through the arduos journey of caring for mom which meant constant emergency room visits, appointments with specialists and long stays in rehab.

I am so pleased to share my artwork helped me to make it through this challenging period. All the work I created while in doctor’s offices and waiting rooms resulted in a spectacular solo art exhibition entitled “Tree-Mendous!”. I dedicated the show to my mother and as life would coincidentally have it, on the last day of the show, its closing, my mother, too, closed. Her journey concluded with the closing of my show dedicated to our tremedously rewarding time together during her last year.

Ahh, the memories…and the joy of total emersion into caring for another while using my art to care for me. Art truly heals.

Here are highlights from the exhibition:

This shows how my process begins with what appears to be crocheted string which I then “sculpt” into images.

Would luv to hear from you. What do you think?

Summer Time & the Living Is…

Summer time and the living is easy, so goes that familiar song.

And so goes my focus on art and my continued direction.  I am ironing out this summer commercial designs.  You think this can work?

Museum inspired tote featuring my designs.  You may recall seeing the initial imaging in my previous post “Mind Labyrinth”.  Feel free to check out that recent post entry.

I envision my artwork on totes, pillows, rugs and more with items available in quality home decor sections or boutique designer outlets.  They are definitely items for Pier 1, Home Goods, Pottery Barn or Bed, Bath & Beyond.  The MoMA Store is also a good fit.  Wayfair or even…what do you think?   Where else can these items be a good fit?
