I have a couple pieces in a gallery show sponsored by the SDA-IL at the Iannelli Studios Heritage Center at 255 N Northwest Hwy in Park Ridge IL from 12pm to 3pm. Please come out and take a look. See Flyer below (if you click on the image you will get a bigger picture). :)
Spring has finally sprung here in the upper Midwest. As I type I can hear Doves cooing and birds chirping. Another sign of spring is that my cats are spending all there time in the windows rather than near the radiators (even though it can get cool at night still). It is also time to start filling out applications for Fall and Winter Craft fairs... lol! I have been busy working on a embroidered art piece for an exhibition titled the "Exquisite Uterus" although I'm not sure when it is going to run since they lost their venue (they are actively seeking another). I will have to post some picture of my progress. I have also in the last couple days been cleaning out my basement studio since it flooded in the rains a few days ago... ugh! I have several towels still in the backyard drying out so I can shake off the grit and put them in the washing machine. Fun huh? Anyway, I finally got back to work on my piece today since the basement is now all dry. Anyway, I needed a break so I thought I would start dusting off my social media sites (which have been thoroughly neglected. :)
We are going to once again be a part of the pop up store known as "Out of the Box" in Oak Park. This is a holiday Market with a wide and changing array of artisans.

Besides working on scarves for craft fairs I worked on a piece that is going to be part of a gallery show titled "Blind Eye: The Result of Doing Nothing" I will be posting more pictures but here is a teaser.
As much as it makes me shudder to say this, I am approaching middle-age (actually I think I am already there...sigh). I have a great many interests (e.g. Anthropology, Photography, Textiles), but at the moment I am concentrating on fiber art (felting and dying fabric in particular). I came to the world of fiber art not that long ago. I have been at it for a little over three years. I sell my felted art at a local shop and and enter the occasional artisan/craft show. I am still taking art classes here and there. I think at this point I should probably call myself a professional student. LOL! I am also a member of the Surface Design Association and the administrator for the Illinois chapter of the SDA's blog.
