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.

Ahh, a fine fit. Smart interior design.
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:

Feeling so inspired!
We all have dreams. But what does it take to move forward? That first step is to go from your mind, to intention, to actually writing it down; then action.
I think the greatest fear of bringing forth our dreams is seeing the finished dream which may be very overwhelming. Time may also be part of that fear…Finding the time or saying it will take too long.
When I first started out as a fiber artist, I had no idea that there was even such an artistic category. I just knew I was on to something. I just continued to focus, work on creations, ask questions and began hanging out in those circles where I began to learn and grow more confident in my journey.
I also began to write down on paper: I am a successful fiber artist!
And, holy cow, I became what I wrote down.
Your dream begins to truly awaken when you write it down. I also find that when you commit to at least 15 minutes per day to cultivating, nurturing your dream…Even just focusing on it…My,my..You will be amazed at what develops.
Now, I want to expand my dream to include others: Alicia Evans’ The Awakenings Cultural Arts Institute™
Here’s what is in the works now from my side of town.

Crocheting is such a reflective process allowing for mindful engagement. Everyone should engage as this form of weaving draws you into an inner realm resulting in resolve, peace and just a grand place of serenity.
So loving the Cohen Art Gallery in New York for now featuring three of my personal beloved pieces from my Redd Series.

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.
A wonderful woman was so impressed with my last exhibition that she invited me to speak at golf course about my artwork. I’ve created a grand chat which will inspire and spark possibilities for all.
