I weave large scale wall hangings. My work has been inspired by: travel (Australia in the Ocean, The Tulip Fields of Holland); works of art (Homage to Sol LeWitt and Homage to The Women of Gee’s Bend); my desire for peace in the world in a time of war (four pieces on the theme of war and peace); family and friends; and also by the many beautiful colors and textiles that surround me.
Among these is the magnificent work with metal by the African artist El Anatsui. A visit to the Bronx Botanic Gardens resulted in Darwin’s Garden.
I have woven on a standing loom in Bellas Artes, The Fine Arts School in San Miguel de Allende, México for more than thirty years. I have had solo and group shows in Mexico and New York City.
My work is on permanent display at both City College and York College of the City University, as well as on long term loan to the NYC Career Center. A grant from the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance helped me to buy a loom and to start weaving in New York.
