National Recognition of Fabric Mosaic Marian Art
Golden Intercessor exhibited in Episcopal Church USA, national juried art show, December, 2012.
ECVA’s beautiful seasonal exhibit, Mary, Mother Of Our Tribe is a ‘telling and re-telling of the story of Mary’ through the visual arts.
Above is a screen shot of the beautiful mosaic of images produced by artists from around the country. With Advent upon us and Mary’s central role in the Christmas story, it is impossible to view this exhibit without contemplating the power of faith in our world.

The icon, Our Lady of Tsarkoe Selo, modeled after an ancient Byzantine icon, inspired this work. Traditionally created icons, being representations of sacred personages, are written following strict rules of color usage and postures depicting various religious significances. They are used as objects of veneration and aids to meditation in some Christian traditions. My fabric mosaic is intended to be contemporary and iconic in nature (without conforming to a prescribed set of rules) and is intended to assist the viewer in spiritual contemplation of the salvific role of Mary.

Art in Service of Art
There is nothing better than being able to use your creativity to the benefit of others. Recently, I was invited to support the fundraising effort of the local chamber ensemble, Cappella Romana, an extraordinary group dedicated to the musical traditions of the early Christian periods. Attending one of their concerts is as near to time-traveling as I can imagine; the ancient becomes accessible allowing me to hear and feel and be touched by the same sounds that countless others down through the centuries have also heard. In listening, time collapses making it easy to imagine Empress Theodora surrounded by the same ancient sounds within cavernous space of the great church in Constantinople.
A Taste of Byzantium, the Sounds of Hagia Sophia will take place November 3rd at the University Club in Portland, Oregon. A signed 12″ x 14″ giclee print of my fabric mosaic, Empress Theodora, will be available at auction. The print was produced by Digicraft with Better Light scanning system and printed on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag paper with Epson Ultrachrome archival ink. To help patrons more fully realize the nature of the fabric medium, I wrote a brief description, stitched together a sampling of fabrics used in the original piece and also created a small example of fabric fused to muslin. I created business cards with Theodora’s image to reflect the theme of the evening.
Here’s to a successful event!
