My friend and fellow artist, Shimoda and I are in the midst of preparing a special event for the summer season. Cotton by the Sea is a show containing jewelry, quilt art and knit wear we have created in celebration of warm weather and stylish living. Please join us for light refreshments and a chance to view and purchase our creations.

SPEAK OUT closing soon

The current exhibit for Harlem Girls Quilting Circle, "SPEAK OUT", is scheduled to close on June 27th. This is a very dynamic exhibit and it is a shame that the viewing opportunities were limited. The exhibit may be extented but if not my 2 quilts will be on display during Cotton by the Sea at the Gadson Gallery, July 12th & 13th. The Speak Out exhibit allowed HGQC members to create work that addressed topics which were inportant to the artist. My Country Tis' of Greed (top) and Tale of Two Sisters(right) both address ideas about our nations conduct and it's relationship to the dollar.
