E-A-S-T (East of Asheville Studio Tour) May 5/6, 10-6

Posted on Monday, April 2nd, 2012

I am going to be a visiting artist for this event at Sarah Lambert’s studio, Uber Kio, at 300 Whitson Street, Swannanoa, North Carolina. (Near Asheville.) Come and see my labyrinths, and more, Sarah’s wonderfully whimsical art, and all the rest of the E-A-S-T artists, from East Asheville, to Fairview, to Swannanoa, to Black Mountain, and beyond, to Old Fort.

The Art of Joy

Posted on Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

Once again it is snowing. Schools have been closed, travel in the Blue Ridge Mountains, with their penchant for black ice, may be difficult or even dangerous. I am grateful for having the day off to play/create in my home studio.

All of my fiber art is, in some way, spiritual; I began by making labyrinths, then buddha-figures; now I am making purses. What ties them all together is the joy I feel when I am creating; I have come to the conclusion that there is no higher art than this, whether I am creating something in my studio, serving a customer at the fabric store where I work part-time, or making dinner with a friend. Joy is what makes each of these acts holy, whole, and spiritual.
