Please find my handsewn piece called “Girls Just Want to have Fun With a Nod to Cindy Lauper, Miriam Shapiro, Judy Chicago, Ariel Pink and the 140,000,000 Women with Genital Mutilation” on the Textile Study Group of New York’s Fall 2018 web gallery.  I am pleased to be included among so many super creative textile /fiber artists!!!

“My Chest Hurts – Bacterial Tracheitis”

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.
