Dye Shed

 The copper and enamel Dye Shed was inspired by the view from my upper metals workbench at Penland School of Arts and Crafts.  Since leaving Oregon in 2008 I have been on a search for a place in which  my sole can call  home.   Working with this familiar shape grounds me until I find a place to land.  Penland is a places where my heart feels at home.

A Map of Home

Maps are a huge part of my life & during this particular session at Haystack I drew my inspiration from them. This necklace is made from a topographical map & waxed linen.

Art Dubai 2011

I took this photo just as I was leaving Art Dubai 2011. I loved this delicate paper art installation presented by a Parisian gallery.

Does this mean my "block" is over? I don't know....
but what I do know is that it's time to sketch!
A very special thanks to Lynette Ten Krooden and the Majlis Gallery.
