My Work Travels Without Me: News from the Studio

Here's what is up. I have actual quilts traveling or being shown now and in the near future. And I have some quilts that have been included in literary magazines this year, another nice acknowledgement of textiles as art. Meanwhile, some stories, poems, and essays have been published in various journals, most of which you can access online. And, of course, Star 82 Review, 12.2, the summer issue, was just released, which features work from around the world that takes us to new places but that feels familiar.

Here's the list. It's also mostly on my website here. Seeing quilts in person is a tactile experience, different from the color and light show of the screen.
