In 2011, I began a new series In Memorium, with two completed work so far: DeerHeart and I'll Fly Away, using taxidermied animal parts, along with many other mixed media, to return animals to the dignity they had in former lives. I had planned to continue in this vein, creating other works using various animal parts, ceramics, feathers, silk leaves and flowers, and any other appropriate found objects, but got distracted by a Dr. John song to make Walk on Gilded Splinters, and then The Warrior Twins, from mostly ceramic source material.
In 2010 to 2011, my sculpture, All Dressed Up, was featured in "Visions of Liberty" at the Maryland Historical Society in Baltimore, helping to express the role women played in eighteenth century American life. It was displayed adjoining a real eighteenth century ball gown, formerly worn by the then First Lady of Maryland. All Dressed Up then joined the permanent collection of the American Visionary Art Museum, in Baltimore.
In the summer of 2009, I had a solo exhibition at the Harmony Hall Regional Center in Fort Washington, Maryland. My work has been shown and is in the permanent collection of the American Visionary Art Museum; and has been shown at a variety of galleries along the East Coast.
