  • Sewing Circle

    A hand picks up a needle and embroiders another hand, and, with each iteration and addition of character, we see that what is inside of each hand is the same: bone, muscle, and the creative need of nimble fingers to make their mark on others and on the world. An intensely personal statement on the expressive quality of needle and thread, this piece celebrates all of my “sisters in stitch.”

  • Diego's Chica (portrait of Frida)

    Frida Kahlo loved Diego Rivera, and I love her. My loving homage to the original selfie queen, my portrait of Frida is rendered entirely by hand with delicate strands of silk and metallic fiber. The crewel embroidery is layered in the manner of a glazed oil painting as a way of following (in fiber) the techniques Ms. Kahlo used in creating her own iconic oil portraits. Her hair is crowned with a bouquet of dimensional stump work flowers, further adding to the life like effect of the work.

  • Diego's Chica (portrait of Frida) - detail

    Frida created her iconic self portraiture as a way of alleviating the pain she felt throughout her adult life; this positive, unvarnished and productive way of coping has guided my own practice of self healing through the making of art. In all of my work, I begin by asking myself a few fundamental questions: what if the paintbrush had never been invented? What if pigment and oil had never been mixed? How ELSE might the great artists have made their mark? In this piece I added: What might have happened if Frida had picked up an embroidery hoop instead of a paintbox? What could she have done with a needle and thread that might have added to the way she saw herself? Would she, too, have anointed her own head with a dimensional flower crown?
    I use my work as a foil to converse with the greats (Van
    I use my work as a platform to converse with the greats (Van Gogh, Khalo, Lichtenstein, Dali, etc.) about how, working together, we could spend the day NOT painting, but using the lowly tools that were there all along. What might Frida have made if she had contemporaneously reframed the artistic hierarchy?

  • Diego's Chica (portrait of Frida) - detail

    This detail shows the stump embroidery technique I used in creating my portrait of Frida. The flowers are truly dimensional, and advance about 1/2" from the surface of the painting.
    Frida Khalo inspires me by the complex body of work she left behind, and by the way she created that work in response to the tumult of her life. When faced with physical and emotional obstacles, Frida did not shrink, but instead attacked her problems with her paintbrush. Like Frida, I use a needle as my weapon, drawing it with the same passion and fight that I imagine Ms. Khalo felt. The art left behind is simply a byproduct of the creative life’s victory over sorrow.

  • The Harvey Girl (a portrait of me, too)

    Hand stitched entirely with individual crewel French knots, this crying Harvey Girl sums up how many women (and a few men) were feeling in 2018, as the world was swept into the honest reckoning of the me too movement. Texans may feel differently about the piece, which was stitched (in part) during the costal deluge caused by hurricane Harvey. A pointillist portrait of the anguish felt by all of the Harvey Girls of 2017, this work has been described as Georges Seurat meets Roy Lichtenstein. Made up of thousands of individual French knots, this "girl" is the first in a series of women expressing the anxieties of our age.

  • Portrait of Suzanne Valadon - Artist, Model, Muse

    Suzanne Valadon was a badass woman and artist before women could be badass artists. The illegitimate daughter of a linen maid, the teenaged Suzanne herself became an unwed mother with no means of supporting herself or her son. With no skills or prospects, Suzanne worked as a trapeze artist until a fall ended that career; she then became an artist's model during the burgeoning fin de siècle Parisian Art scene. Standing for every great painter from Degas, Renoir and Lautrec, Suzanne, with a gift for drawing taught her self how to make art simply by observing the masters at work. This piece is based on a self portrait of Valadon (1898) which is part of the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

In my diminutive hand embroidered portrait, featuring a dimensional, shade throwing hat brim, I chose to wrap Georgia in a blanket fashioned after her own Sky Clouds painting, which hangs over the smaller grand staircase at the Art Institute of Chicago.

  • BLOWN (hate, love and Twitter, a portrait of Donald Trump

    The Portrait of Donald Trump is entirely hand embroidered on silk damask using crewel wool, silk and metallic fiber.  There is a wired stumpwork component, which is hand embroidered in silk fiber. The portrait is self framed and trimmed with black velvet, and measures 7” X 9” (oval). 


    The most prominent feature of the piece is a waving wired stump work toupee, which lifts to reveal the Candidate’s and America’s love/hate relationship with him, and, particularly, with  his Twitter proclamations.  As he was presented by a malleable press, the Donald is portrayed in vibrant, garish technicolor; a shiny and exciting tchotchke that is all flash and no substance.  The toupee projects about 2.5 inches from the picture plane, and can be manipulated (in the manner of a ventriloquist’s dummy), to reveal or hide his thoughts.  For a special collector, I will be happy to hand sew an additional hanger to the lower portion of the back, so that the portrait can be hung upside down.

  • BRANDED (Easy A, a portrait of Hillary, Bill and Monica

    The portrait of Secretary Clinton is entirely hand embroidered using tonal silk fiber on a black silk velvet ground.  The piece is self framed and trimmed with black velvet, and measures 9” in diameter. 


    The portrait is based on a school aged photograph of a young Hillary Rodham, and, in exactly the same way that the press and less than half of the electorate saw her, young Hillary is presented in polarized black and white, with only one hint of color: a large scarlet A upon her collar.  At first glance, the mark appears to compliment the Secretary’s intelligence, good grades, and general success as an intellectually gifted female, but, like Hawthorne’s Hester Prynne, young Hillary is also forever marked with damnation; criticized unfairly, not by her character, intellect or actions, but by a Puritanical judgement of her husband’s behavior.

  • The Treachery of Jobs

    A play on Magritte's Surrealist Art statement regarding pipes, this piece invites the viewer to consider their own lives - both with and without the thing every modern gentleman (and lady) now carries in their pocket: their smartphone. As ubiquitous and addictive as the pipe in Magritte's day, the smartphone is both a tool and a trap. Not that long ago, we could not conceive of living with a portable, hand sized computer, now few can envision life without one. Those who are truly plugged in will appreciate the hanging hardware, which is a twisted, looping charger cable which has been carefully sewn to the back of this mixed media piece.

    Wool, silk crewel embroidery on deep black velvet. Based on Vermeer's exquisite "Girl with a Pearl Earring," this piece updates that image with a contemporary girl, dressed in garb stolen from an old boyfriend. And, like Vermeer's own girl of long ago, she turns toward us, the viewer, confidently inviting us in as her stunning eyes return our gaze. In this work, I tried to present a timeless subject and method of expression within a framework of modernity.

  • SXSW (what I missed...)

    Interwoven sewn sequins on a deep velvet ground. Austin festivals are a blast. As night falls, the city streets fill with people, each one rushing to meet their friends, catch a movie, or listen to their new favorite band. But there is more going on... Everyone – and I mean everyone - is clutching a smartphone in their hands, bowing to the technology as it guides their every experience. Meals are meticulously researched, executed and instagrammed. Routes between activities are valued by length, not by scenery. Chance is unavailable. The herds are both followed and guided by their GPS, and every move is documented in the clouds, even if the stars are shining brightly. In the piece, thousands of hand sewn sequins in dozens of lines weave, bob and intersect across a deep velvet ground, with each tiny dot representing the movements of the phones and the people who follow them. Who and what was seen, and who and what was missed?

    Action dyed pure silk ribbon on a ground of turquoise silk dupioni, this piece was inspired by a pile of dozens and dozens of yards of ribbon tangled (after drip dying) on my studio table. As I ran my fingers through the lengths, I realized that the exuberant texture and the interplay of color was much more interesting than my original intent for the ribbon, so I stiffened the pieces and blind sewed them to a canvas stretched with luxurious silk dupioni (slubbed silk).The crashing of cool and warm colors on the final piece reminded me of that shocking little toe dip moment of being both in and out of a warm bath.

    The Roadways of Central Texas OWN early Spring, thanks to the seeds sown half a century ago by native daughter LadyBird Johnson. Blues, pinks, corals, violets, yellows and reds drift through luminescent greens, giving the viewer the sensation of a top down road trip, complete with wayfarers, blasting tunes, and the soft feeling of day's end. An impressionistic play on the patches of roadside color that every Texas child knows, this woven silk painting shimmers and gleams like dappled sunlight rushing by in a blur.

    The Final Frontier
  • Sea of Tranquility

    Woven with action dyed pure silk satin ribbon, this piece was constructed by assembling strips of ribbon, then (in an homage to Pollock) action drip dying them to make a non objective image, followed by "fracturing" the pieces and reassembling them into a whole new idea and concept of what a painting can be. When completed, the carefully controlled and soothing color scheme reminded me of the moon on a cloudless night: silvery, cool and dreamy.

  • Floating on the Sea of Tranquility

    A study for "The Sea of Tranquility," this was woven with action dyed pure silk satin ribbon. When completed, the carefully controlled and soothing color scheme reminded me of the moon on a cloudless night: silvery, cool and dreamy. I added sequins and beads on both the front and the sides of the painting because I wanted to enhance the floating feeling that the painting evoked.

  • Electric Slide

    A shimmering controlled slide of hand dyed white silk slides sinuously down the length of an acrylic painting, dripping with surreal discord from the lowest edge of the work.
