Interview: GRAVITATING TOWARDS GRIDS



GRAVITATING TOWARDS GRIDS, an interview about me and my time as an Artist-in-Residence at the Women's Studies Research Center at Brandeis University last Spring, is in the November 2014 issue of 614, the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute's eZine. The theme is "Fall into Jewish Art".

I enjoyed answering the thought provoking questions. This is my most favorite quote:

Jeanne Williamson doesn’t see fences as a way to keep people in or out, but as a form of protection and an inspiration for art.

12 x 12 x 12 November 2014


12 x 12 x 12 November 2014, the eleventh piece in my 2014 12 x 12 x 12 series, is a combination of monoprinted garden fencing on fabric, a translucent photo of bunched up orange construction fencing, and some threads embedded in matt medium and cut into the shape of one of the construction fence patterns in my collection.

I'll be making another piece in December, and which will complete eight years of working in this series. I'm undecided if I'll continue in 2015, but I'm leaning toward doing so.

The 12 x 12 x 12 monthly series is my monthly time to play with materials or an idea. Each piece is mixed media on 12" x 12" x 1" board. You can read past posts about this series here on my blog, or see all of the completed work on my website.

New Work: 12 x 12 x 12 October 2014


12 x 12 x 12 October 2014 was created with pieces of painted fabric leftover from my Artist-in-Residence and exhibit at Brandeis University last spring. Before I started at Brandeis, I monoprinted and painted yards and yards of fabric with a lot of color, to experiment with different fabric paints so I could see how they sit on and soak through the white cotton fabric I so enjoy working with.

The 12 x 12 x 12 monthly series is my monthly time to play with materials or an idea. I'm nearing the end of my eighth year working on this series. Each piece is mixed media on 12" x 12" x 1" board. You can read past posts about this series here on my blog, or see all of the completed work on my website.

New Home


Seasonal Fences - Summer #2 and Seasonal Fences - Autumn #2 have a new home in a high end residential tower in the Boston area. Both of these pieces were at a Boston art consultant, and they arranged the sale. I am very thankful for their role in this transaction.

The Seasonal Fences series are abstractions of different colors of fences in contrast to the landscape during different seasons. They are mixed media on 22" x 10" x 1"  board, created in 2011. 


I've had good success with this series, which I was doubtful about when I created it. 

Seasonal Fences - Spring #3, is also being sold as a print, Seasonal Fence Print, at Crate & Barrel.

And, Seasonal Fences -Winter #1, Spring #1, Summer #1 and Autumn #1 were purchased by Meditech (Medical Information Technology) in Framingham, MA in March 2012. 

It just goes to show that just because an artist may doubt their own work, others may like it.

12 x 12 x 12 September 2014


The September 12 x 12 x 12 is a combination of drop cloth fabric and pieces of acrylic "skins" of photographs of details of the colorful monoprints I created this past summer. The "skins" are layered on top of the small bubble-like circles, and at the top and the bottom edges, which are also highlighted with orange paint so we don't forget the construction fence inspiration.

I've been having fun this year working with a combination of "skins" and fabric, not only in this 12 x 12 x 12 series, but in other series too.

The 12 x 12 x 12 monthly series is my monthly time to play with materials or an idea. This is my eighth year working on this series. Each piece is mixed media on 12" x 12" x 1" board. You can read past posts here on my blog, or see all of the completed work on my website.
