Bosom Buddies and the Night of the Boobie Bird

acrylic on cotton, hand embroidery, beads and feather
In the midnight hours when dark thoughts lurk the screech of a creature becomes entangled in your nightmare.


I am working on a series of embroideries based on my drawings that I did while I was going through breast cancer last year. 
They will be exhibited in April at the Yellow Springs Arts Council Community Gallery.
Meanwhile here is a website that I put together about the exhibit called

Art and Politics: In the Court of Clowns

 I just can't keep up with the breadth of it at the moment, we are hardly into this presidency and each day there is some new drama, treason, nepotism, declarations full of hot air, lies, fake news.

Lost Bear Adventures as Told By a Friendly Lady

In between all the serious artwork, the community work, the gallery work, website work, I still like to be playful. I have started a page for Lost Bear on Instagram. Oh yes, I know, that place dismissed by the elite photographers of the world, well sorry but not sorry I don't care. If lost bear makes you smile my job is done.

Craft Activism with the Jafagirls

Watch now: The Art Show | Season 6, Episode 2 | ThinkTVNetwork Video

The Jafagirls of Yellow Springs use craft activism to raise awareness of social issues. We visit the Cohen Film Collection in Columbus, where modern technology is being used restore and preserve rare movie classics. The 442s in St. Louis fuse classical music and jazz. Watch online: Season 6, Episode 2 from The Art Show.

I was pretty nervous about doing this, and even more so watching it. They did a grand job with the editing and can't say enough kind things about the producer, Ann Rotolante, and the film crew. Doing it was such a great experience.

PussyHat Project and Ipad Drawing Protest Sign

I've been busy knitting hats, making street art(viva la vulve), drawing, and working on the Yellow Springs Arts Council event at Antioch University Midwest. It's been one BUSY week.  The PussyHat project inspired me to do an ipad drawing called "sisterhood"  that several local marchers asked if they could use for a poster. I was honored and happy to say YES. So while I was unable to go to the Women's March I am glad I was able to contribute hats and art.

I wonder what Britain's First Feminist, Mary Wollstonecraft, would have thought of this. I just imagine her joining in
"I do not wish women to have power over men; but over themselves"
