Please join me this Friday, August 19, when the first of the St. Louis "Innovations in Textiles" events opens with a public reception from 7-9pm at the Edwardsville Art Center where my newly created, handmade paper landscape constructions, inspired by our recent trip to Cornwall, UK, will be on display.

The exhibit, curated by Laura Strand, Professor of Textiles at Southern Illinois University, includes a wide variety of artworks created by MFA, BFA and BA alumni who studied with Laura at SIUE:
