Did you know that quilting was one of the first "green" activities popularized by women?

Sticks and Stones Make Great Art

Does that phrase give my age away? Maybe, but I'm also going to be giving away lots of great things: humorous stories, invites, fun facts and art info you might not get anywhere else. Here is a sample of my work via photo taken by Susan Constanse, my friend and studio mate in a rag-tag, but awesome warehouse deep in urban Pittsburgh not far from our downtown. This piece was in a Women of Vision's Show, a group of terrific artists who just happen to be the same gender. I also belong to other orgainzations (get that from my profile, if you must), but mostly I just do what I do, because I love art and can't throw anything away. It was during a residency at Construction Junction, that I became completely addicted to junk, recyling and green artistry.

My mission-- if you want to call it that-- is just to talk about art, meet artists, and to inspire and be inspired. Let's talk...let's write!
