I have been working on several 100′ camouflage ropes for an immersive installation of I Am My Hair. I am deep into earth tones at the moment…
Due to Covid19, Dayton Society of Artists is presenting, Intertwined, a national juried exhibition of fiber arts, online. I am one of 32 fiber artists in the show. The diversity and quality of work is amazing.
Intertwined, officially opens May 1, 2020 at 6pm
BUT you can view the exhibition at intertwinedgallery.com now.
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.
Want a sneak peak on what i’ve been working on?

When I applied for the 14C Art Fair, I did not think my application would be accepted. You don’t get if you don’t try, so I applied anyway, to both the Juried Show and for my own room to exhibit and host a fiber workshop. And by some miracle, here I am with an acceptance to both.
My work will be on display in exhibition room 843 at the Hyatt Regency, Exchange Place in Jersey City NJ from February 21st – 23rd.
I will be hosting a Yarn Wrapping Workshop in my exhibition room through out the art fair. Watch this space for more detail on the times for the workshop and to sign up.
I love making art but I love finding my art new homes even more. With McCarty’s help, this will be the year we maximize Shopify’s marketing automation tools and revenue on ThedaSandifordArt.com. Yes, this means I’ll recommit to Instagram and post at least once a day.
Use this space to document my preparation and participation in Kenya Friends Art Residency this July 2020… Ive already started studying Kiswahili on Duolingo. And created a Pinterest Inspiration board so you can see where my head is at. More to come, as I to learn to cook ugali and map out my adventure.
Apply for and Win a grant to further develop, I Am My Hair Art Workshop. I want to take my workshop to Atlanta, Nashville and Austin. And create a catalog documenting the stories and people who participate in the workshop.
I live art-ed making a Vision Board at SXSW in 2007 (I think that was the year). I want to up the ante and run I Am My Hair workshop at SXSW in 2021. I need help capturing video of me working in studio and editing a clip I can submit as part of a multimedia application for SXSW Art Program 2021. Any volunteers? I can barter with art, a delicious meal and wine paring.
