Thank you for visiting.


Trust your choices. Please yourself.

We have to trust our own choice after all, and end with the simple belief that what pleases us is beautiful.  

Indeed, no other rule is of any use to us, and if we do but honestly please ourselves, and make forms which genuinely give us pleasure, we shall find ourselves with the power of designing beautiful things.

Painted & machine stitched antique lace fragments
glued to fabric with ordinary white glue;
painted with Jacquard Lumiere paints;
machine stitched when dry

 The result is a page in an altered art book called, 
Singing With A Full Voice.

I made my song a coat
Covered with embroideries

Out of old mythologies. . .         
William Butler Yeats

Stitched cotton floss 

  I used this technique when creating a small art piece, called, 
that celebrated my paternal grandmother's (left, above) daring-do
wearing pants in the early 1900s.
An abundance of French Knots.

Embroidery has a natural affinity for flowers. 
It can also, of course, 
represent nothing at all.   

Entrapped fibers under shear fabric
with a frame of satin stitch
Another page in the same altered book, 
Singing With A Full Voice.
