Artist Statement

a year’s worth:  an almanack

 

For twelve months, I gathered plant materials from our land to mark the seasons with the fleeting colors of the dye bath as transferred to paper and fiber.  Each almanack leaf, and each of the books, are folded, dyed and stitched, augmented with watercolor and knitting.

 

For the ladies throughout history who have marked the changing seasons by the colors of their dyebaths:

 

 

Strand Series

 

The works on paper comprising the strand series are made from layers of acrylic, pastel, watercolor, graphite and charcoal.  Each work has a 3D element, knitted or knotted from rubber tubing or handspun wool, pinned to the piece with stainless dressmaker’s pins.  During earlier centuries, garments were willed to the next generation - textiles were very valuable.  As styles changed, the clothing was altered to fit the current trend, often resulting in pieces left behind, or stored for later use.  Looking at photographs of fragments of Viking clothing, the discovered garments, buried in the mud of Greenland for over a thousand years, one senses the hand of the maker.
