This is mid summer 2021.

Just got back from a workshop:" Go Big Go Bold". Print with Dye workshop, taught by Pat Pauly( at Pro Chem).

It was a fun intense week. I feel we learnt a lot!

 May 2021.

It looks like zoom technologies are here to stay. This is one of the pandemic era tools that brought people from all over the world together to share their love of art, learning and teaching.

I am part of several art groups, not just quilting, fiber arts, surface design, but sketching too. Last Saturday I joined the Urban Sketchers. I sat down side by side (metaphorically) with artists from other countries and different time zones to sketch /paint windmills. it was so much fun!!!

 With another group of quilter friends, we played with paper collage:

So much fun to uses recycled paper from Magazines, newspaper, old maps and calendars.
The flowers this spring are so amazing in shape and color.... or is it us able to appreciate
them more after this pandemic?

From this idea of using circles came this fabric collage:

 This is Fall 2020 here in NY, we had exciting colors out there and especially on sunny days you could wonder how this is all possible....Now most of the trees are bare, here and there a few last remnants of colors.

I feel lucky for our good health, for the opportunity of getting my chance to sketch, draw

and Paint again.

Some of my local friends keep the connection, the tradition, the zoom support. Here are some recent work.

I am busy with a new series of Sunflowers that brings me light and happy moments.

Downtown Ossining.

June is my favorite month, you guessed it: my birthday, summer, sunshine, long days and plenty of light.
My show at the Ossining library side gallery is just virtual as we are in an unusual time due to Covid 19 Virus....
I wish you could come and see the work in person.

In the meantime I will try and attach a google slide show...I am so challenged when it comes to navigating technology. Until then here are a few of my latests.

Happy 2020!
My blog is 10 years old, wow,
I am grateful for being able to create art, and exhibit in my area.
During October 2019 I had a solo show in Mount Kisco Library showing my large art quilts,
and during December had a solo show in Warner Library in Tarrytown NY with smaller pieces. It is a nice way of showing local art to the community. Lately I have been enjoying working on a series.

Working in a series enabled me to explore different ways of  expressing ideas.
The top drawing is from 1975 quill pen and ink.
the bottom is fabric and thread: "Crossroads", 35Wx23L (inches)

This is Fall 2019,
I feel very lucky that I participated in 3 exhibitions simultaneously this month:
One was a group show of Ossining Artists:OAC: "Think Big" with my Quilt:"Preservation". It has a combination of traditional style quilting with free art quilting.
Second is my solo exhibit of 12 large works in Mount Kisco Library, Oct3-30, 2019.
Third is a FANE ( Fiber Art Northeast) group at the Mahopac Library:"Signature Style".
and another at Somers Library with "Alphabetica". so actually 4!
