New Work and news!

Happy to say that two of my textile collages were accepted into the Western Spirit Art Show at the Old West Museum in Cheyenne, Wyoming. This is a highly competitive show, and I feel honored to be included once again.

Experimenting with digital printing of my designs. An interesting journey...
