Over Christmas break I left all the baggage 🧳 of 2020 behind in this cart to clear my way forward in 2021. And then other carts showed up so clearly, I have more baggage to excoriate.
My work Caribbean Friendship Bracelet was selected for Fiber Art Now’s Excellence In Fibers VI.
The Excellence In Fibers VI exhibition that was planned to open in December 2020 at the New Bedford Art Museum but will now be a virtual online exhibition running through March 2021.
And in publication
Caribbean Friendship Bracelet will also appear in the winter issue of Fiber Art Now’s annual Excellence In Fibers catalog issue out the end of this year.
I promise to share the links.
In the exhibition Material Identity, artists and makers are invited to explore the substance of material, paying special attention to their place in the world, either from a focus inward, or how they identify in. The show asks how does materiality represent who we are? Does the material you use dictate who you are as a maker? How does medium speak to who you are as an individual?
EXHIBITION DATES: July 10 – Aug 29, 2020
LOCATION: Artworks Center for Contemporary Art in Loveland Colorado
I have three fiber works in the exhibition
Beauty is given –

Take a sneak peak on new Quarantine Art from I Am My Hair series… All Dressed Up With Nowhere To Go…
I invited friends to my studio to wrap yarn, recycled sari thread, ribbon onto cotton rope.
5 people imbued their essence and became a part of the rope, as we discussed the trials and tribulations of our hair.
Finding a common denominator amongst us all, HAIR.

I won NOW FRIENDS; Artist Residency, Kenya 2020.
I have reread the email congratulating me for winning â€œNOWâ€¢FRIENDS ; Artist Residency, Kenya 100 times and it is just now starting to sink in.
I’m going to Kenya in July 2020! Returning to Kenya for the first time since my junior year abroad in 1990. Whoa!
NOW FRIENDS ; Artist Residency, Kenya gives an artist the opportunity to immerse themselves in real communities and obtain authentic experiences. During the 2-week residency artists are encouraged to step out of what they would typically consider their work.
While in Residency, I plan to work with community members on a collaborative project weaving hair from local textiles and found materials. I also plan to visit other artists working in Kenya. Please send artist suggestions.
I look forward to meeting new friends and seeing how my work becomes influenced by my time in Kenya. I can’t wait to go textile and bead shopping.
