Windows On Woodstock

Windows On Woodstock is my textile art studio in Santa Ynez, CA. It is a converted barn which sits high on a hill overlooking Woodstock Road and the Santa Ynez Valley. Within the 1500+ square feet I create art pieces from my hand dyed fabrics which I screen print, paint, stencil, otherwise embellish and stitch. My work ranges from representational to conceptual to abstract. Several series are incorporated into my body of work.

"Science as Art"

This piece is called "Science as Art".  I have become increasingly concerned, and more than a little angry, that funding for art programs in the public school system is gradually being eliminated--many times in favor of sports.  This is my statement that art and science can co-exist.  Neither should be forfeited in any balanced educational system--and certainly sports should not be favored over development of mind and talent. The background of this piece is hand painted in copper metallic paint.  The mathmatical formulas, which represent science, are hand painted, and the 50's style "art" blocks are screen-printed. The piece is free-motion quilted.  This piece will be shown as part of my Art and Science series in a solo exhibition in the spring.
