I have finished and posted five more hand-embroidered panels to my series “Needling the Regime”. I’ll be taking a break now to work on other projects. There’s only so much concentrating on Trump that I can do without permanent moral damage. To see the work please check my portfolio.
Very pleased that my “Uh-Oh” series moved from an exhibit in Dubai to another show in Lahore, Pakistan, curated by Sunday Matloob. The exhibit “Ijtima” focused on gender issues. The show was well-reviewed including in the Express Tribune https://tribune.com.pk/story/1500454/ijtima-discourse-gender-womanhood/?amp=1
“Screwed: Mt. Rushmore” has been published in the “Futures” issue of Slag Mag, a publication of the Old Furnace Artists Residency in Harrisonburg, VA, which focuses on social justice.
Other works from the series will be published in an upcoming issue of “Textiel Plus”, an international fiber arts magazine based in the Netherlands.
I made Pussy Paws Resist in response to the “election” of Comrade Trumpski.
Response to it has been enthusiastic, so BE Galleries and I will be producing it as a poster with proceeds going to Planned Parenthood of Pittsburgh.
Joy Borelli, of BE Galleries will produce a limited edition of 50 signed archival giclee prints, $100 of each poster sold goes to Planned Parenthood.

Just returned from the opening of my solo exhibit “Memento Mori” at LHUCA in Lubbock, TX where, despite snow and ice storms, a crowd of over 1,000 people attended the First Friday Art Trail event.
Congratulations to the hard-working organizers of this amazing cultural center who have developed an enthusiastic and dedicated audience for the arts!
The show continues through February 18th with more than 30 works from series including “A Day in the Life of Mrs. Death”, “From the Cradle to the Grave”, “Rebus” and “Dead Funny”.
