This represents only about 10 seconds of the 1971 “Anthrax” album recording of the wonderfully swirling, cyclical mantras of Terry Riley’s Sax, and the piano’s oceanic roll by John Cale, (famous for his membership in the Velvet Underground).

Every single day with Mark Hahn is a blessing- full of laughter, fascinating conversations, kindness and so much LOVE. This is my largest sewn piece to date in my effort to suggest how happy I am with my beloved.
The overwhelming sounds of the commercial jet engines frame the surrealistic experience and view I have through a plane window so late at night, providing impetus for this drawing as we left the Chicago area.
This represents the last few seconds of a percussion concert at Cornell in the Johnson Museum. The 3 smaller drums sounds cycle and bump off the concrete walls and the bass drum releases its staccato sound drops. Tim Feeney provided a most stimulating aural soundscape.

A few years ago when I underwent radiation treatments as part of my journey with cancer, I created a sound track on my iPod to support my healing. This image is the sound of a single harmonic guitar chord that I visualized as cutting a slice off my tumor and making that slice explode and disappear with the radiation treatments. In October 2013, I had the greatest pleasure to finally meet the composer/guitarist, Max Maffia in his beautiful home city of Salerno, Italy. I cherish the memory of the concert Max organized in my honor, in a Salerno art gallery with his entire band, and 50 of his dearest family and friends. I finally got to hear a live version of the song that supported my healing.
