The Magnet 30″x30″ Silk with metallic, cotton and linen thread and floss
As an anniversary gift for my beloved husband Mark, this was made to represent our almost neodymium magnetic response of our hearts and minds when first we met 38 years ago. And the powerful attraction is still there. We always say we are still on our honeymoon, because we are!

My narrative that the Presidency is a position of serious responsibility for the good of the entire nation, where ego is tempered by the understanding that the role requires thoughtful responses, that words matter and that personal financial aggrandizement is absolutely not ok, has been exploded. I trust in the rule of law and my fellow citizens to restore my faith in this position.

This song is a bubble-dub song, bumpy with colored percussion, and simple circular and angular patterns. Feels like the party detritus strewn in my brain the day after a very joyful lively gathering. Completed June 1, 2017
Remembering my friends Adam Lee and Jason Mejia
“There you go, swimming deeper into Mystery. Here I remain only seeing where you used to be…….Gone from Mystery into Mystery. Gone from daylight into night. Another step deeper into darkness, closer to the light.” Bruce Cockburn

As a synesthete, if I care to “look” at what I feel, I can draw it. This is what a sore chest felt like. It was all sort of squeezey pressure with points of pain like a very sore throat in the wrong place. The fabric piece is sewn directly on a commercial 12″ square stretched linen canvas. I am quite well now, and all that remains, thankfully, is the artwork.

I always liked the music in video games better than the games. The sounds are discrete and usually very bouncy. This is a gestalt of many musical experiences with chiptunes.

Using my synesthesia, my hearing to seeing and making art, I created this hand sewn surface design based on live electronics and bass drum. “The Deformation of Figures” was composed by Seth Cluett and performed by percussionist Tim Feeney. This “lowercase” music is an extreme form of ambient music, subtle and rich. The electronics/sine tones, are in color, and the percussion is in black for this one hour performance. I make sketches while listening at a live concert, and re listen to recordings until I am happy with my capture of the “bones” of the music.
