Riparian Zone Transitions From Sketches to Textiles

Every morning, I enter the studio with a pot of coffee and write in my studio log what I'm going to work on that day. It is very rare for me to skip a day in the studio. Even if I can only work for a hour, I record the day's activities.  Today I was thinking about transitioning my Riparian Zone project from paper to textiles. You can see more work HERE.

I love watching BBC documentaries and the one I watched yesterday was about  ancient Roman Art. Watching this video inspired me to think about creating work that is the artifact of "tomorrow". Sounds weird but I love the mystery of ancient mosaic art that is missing information but hints at what this missing part can be. Don't know for sure how this will work itself out, but I'm excited about the possibilities!

Cristo Today

Cristo and Jeanne- Claude are two of my artistic heroes and I really loved reading this interview. When  Jeanne-Claude died, I wondered how Cristo would carry on...and he has.

Riparian Zone

Riparian Zone # 1

The biologically distinctive area that borders rivers, streams and creeks, the Riparian Zone, acts as a protective buffer between land and water.  Large undisturbed Riparian zones filter our water, mitigate flooding and provide protection for the diverse life forms that live in, on and near our waterways. “Riparian Zone” celebrates this natural zone and expresses the pressure urban development places on these fragile pieces of land.
