DESCRIPTION: Textiles & Tapestries, Unframed, Embroidery & Vintage Jewelry on Linen

ARTIST STATEMENT: Originally from Greenwich Village, NYC-I grew up around a vibrant diverse community where my mother owned a vintage clothing store for 40 years. Being in that environment influenced my aesthetic. I make images often nostalgic, brightly colored, using vintage fabric and juvenile in style. I am very interested in how things look from being decayed, aged and worn. I taught art in kindergarten for 16 years and the looseness, naivety and freedom of the children's art made a big impression on my style.
