Look In Thy Glass

My handmade textile book Look in Thy Glass has found a permanent home at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.  This is the 4th book in my series Love Sonnets, From Shakespeare to Baltimore.

Look in Thy Glass will be part of the upcoming exhibition DMV Color from November 4, 2019 through March 4, 2020.  So honored to be included in the dialogue about literature, art and women's history.

Surviving my Teen Years with Shakespeare

I became passionate about poetry in high school when I desperately needed guidance.  When I needed something to make sense of the chaos others called life.  There was no IG, no FB, no Internet, no cell phones, no "reach out and touch" when life quickly crumbled, leaving you alone with just the clothes on your back.

Earlier this year I revisited all 154 Shakespeare Sonnets and began making textile books inspired by them.  Here is Sonnet One -- Don't Get Twisted by the Bling of Youth.
