On the Road/Dreamscape, 2023

12in paper quilt square
Foil, tissue paper, glitter, and found images.

Inspired by the prompt “on the road,” I turned to my dreams, which always feature travel and temporary lodgings. I follow along a road less traveled, passing confusing landscape features and encountering identical houses originally attached to lighthouses, clipped from a Via magazine.

Nostalgia/Olfactory, 2021

Paper and foil with found images and coffee grounds. 12in x 12in paper quilt square

A  little skunk investigates an oversized, damask coffee cup that has fallen on a step. The coffee cup image, originally an ad for Colombian Coffee, has been in my collection for decades. One day, a resident skunk died on my front step. Because there is a certain olfactory kinship between the scent of coffee and the lingering spray of the skunk, this collage commemorates these memories with a blank postcard and coffee grounds.
