"Lodge Singer"  SOLD

This large-eyed barred owl sat one evening in a pine outside my studio window. The robins were all a twitter and disturbed by its presence. The evening light danced pink and gold behind as the sun set. This stitched piece has dyed fabrics and cheesecloth, and vintage lace and buttons, Ojibwe music of the owl "Who sits atop my lodge", which I felt appropriate. I painted the fabric and machine and slow stitched the owl focusing on those dark eyes that seem to jump from the dusk deep woods.

"Ramblin" SOLD

This black bear boar rambled across the road in front of us one late summer day into a field of big bluestem, Queen Anne's lace and asters. Taking its time, the huge bear, seemed to have no concern and was out for a stroll. Seed stitching represent the seeds translocating and transplanting themselves with the rambler! Buttons, dyed and rust fabrics, and stitching tell the tale.
