I have a tiny peacock on my chandelier. This is my view from the kitchen- it makes me so happy and I thought it would make a great quilt. What do you think?
Tomorrow I'm part of a new show opening at Hillsborough Gallery of Arts entitled "Dwell." The show is a collaboration of work by Ellie Reinhold, Nell Chandler and myself, and explores our relationships to how we live and how we relate to that space. I'm excited to be showing my work with these two women- though we work in different mediums, there is a boldness and graphic simplicity that ties our work together. There is a reception tomorrow from 6-9, and the show runs through May 25. I hope you can make it!
I went to a reception last night to mark the opening of the Cancer Center at Alamance Regional Hospital. My work is lined up along the entrance to patient exam rooms, directly across from the nurses' stations. The entire floor is filled with art that feels happy and serene.
2014 has brought an exciting commission to my studio- a multi-panel landscape for the new cancer ward at Alamance Regional Hospital in Burlington, North Carolina. The finished piece will stretch along 37 feet of hallway and provide a representation of North Carolina from the mountains to the coast. This week I've been working on the mountains. The Blue Ridge has such a unique and beautiful skyline- unlike the Rockies or the Alps, the Appalachians are ancient and soft and fade back to a whisper. It's an interesting element to incorporate into the composition and watch how it comes together.
