SACRED KNOTS AT THE END!

November 2014

 

Beyond excited to announce my trunk show at The End in ucca Valley near Joshua Tree, California.  The End is a very specially curated space owned by my favorite artist, Kime Buzzelli.  Having deeply influenced my work, I think my jewelry and wallhangings will be at home.  

 

While the show will only last an evening, many of the pieces will remain at The End, available for purchase in store.

WALLHANGINGS

October 2014

 

I've begun transforming my knotting techniques from jewelry to wallhangings.  My pieces vary in size from 2 feet to 6 feet long !

 

Made from cotton and mixed fibers, each piece is hand-wrapped in yarn, knotted, sewn, and tasseled.   They are ready to hang from a nail , hook, or thumbtack.

Sacred Knots

June 2014

 

After experimenting this past year with knotting techniques, Ive started branching into fiber art.  Sacred Knots is a collection of fiber jewelry based upon the ancient art form of knotting.  Folk artists, mariners, and skilled craftspeople symbolically expressed deep desires, created solutions for everyday problems, and decorated objects using simple materials and hours of skillful experimentation entwining cords. From the strong goddess energy expressed by the Celtic knots to the manifestation power inherent in the Chinese knots, each design is imbued with timeless symbolism.

I recently was asked to do an astrology inspired series for the birthday themed May issue of Panda Head Newsletter, curated by Morgan Hungerford West.  The series consists of photo painting collages for each sign of the zodiac.  I styled and shot photos of my muse Leah and collaged them with my watercolor paintings.  The full series and May issue of  Panda Head can be viewed here:

Welcome, Spring... The purrfect season to send a love note.  I've  been busy sewing pockets made from last remenants of floral vintage fabrics to greeting cards.  Tucked inside each pocket is a small illustrated print with a "Thinking of you" message.  The cards are left blank inside for your message.  Buy sets of four in the same fabric, or get a variety pack.

Los Gitanos Shop Mural 
August 2013

On your next stroll through the U St Corridor of Washington, DC, take a detour through the beautiful Los Gitanos Vintage-- a gem tucked inside Blues Hard Goods on 14 St.,  specializing in women's clothing and accessories from the 1800s through the 1960s.  I was so pleased when owner Tara Papanicolas asked me to paint the Los Gitanos girl logo I designed earlier that year on the wall in mural form.
