52 Weeks of Printmaking on Textile: Week 22

Nigerian Textiles, 1970's

It has been a busy two weeks and I've fallen behind in blogging.  I've been meeting my mentor at the Smithsonian more often and we have been joined by senior art history fellows (more of this on future posts).
Having my handmade textile books reviewed by art historians has been one of the most rewarding experiences I've had as an artist.  They are able to make historical, cultural, and social connections, offering new insights to "reading" my works.  They ask me questions about my process and we engage in discussions about printmaking, textiles, provenance, and conservation.

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
