One of my goals last year was to get my art work published. So I have been submitting work for publication to several calls for entry and I am happy to say that I have had a small art quilt published in the Geography of Loss by Patti Digh. The book came out in January on Amazon and it is a beautifully designed book filled with art to accompany different people’s stories about loss and how they navigated through that loss. The legend on the front of the book says: embrace what is, honor what was, love what will be. The book is very special and it is an honor to be in the book on page 92. Here is my quilt that I call Far Away and it is about someone leaving and then not being in your life anymore. The piece is meant to be a positive statement about how people pass through our lives, some briefly and some for a long time, each one touching us in some way.

It has been a long while since I have made a blog post. I don’t have a reason why this has happened and it probably doesn’t matter. I have been creating a lot of meaningful art work and sharing my art in smaller circles, as that feels more comfortable to me. A lot of my recent work feels too personal to share in a larger arena. I would like to say that wherever you are in your journey, the important thing is that you are learning, opening up, and growing more into being yourself.

    This piece is fantastic! It’s great that you got published. Very few achieve that accomplishment. You always have a keen eye for blending colors well in your quilt designs.
