I offer Zoom or In Person Lectures w Trunk Show and Q&A for guilds and groups. Topics include:
'Late Bloomer: How I Discovered Fibre Art' That's right. I learned to thread a machine at age 40. I talk about what inspires me and how I create my threadpaintings.
'I Cross the Line: Sharing Textile Art within the Fine Art Community' My story as a fibre artist who doesn't hang out exclusively with Fibre Art groups. This is covers my journey into textile art from the perspective of being an artist first. I strongly feel that fibre should be valued equally as an art medium alongside all other mediums.
'Fibre Art with Children & Other Wonderous Things' This one is uplifting and inspiring. For teachers and grandmothers alike, I offer examples of simple ways you can introduce textiles to make positive impressions in various situations. Joyful and very heartwarming stories.
'Adventures in Public Art Projects' Good if you're looking for consultation or inspiration for upcoming projects or ideas. I am excellent at brainstorming and troubleshooting, and can offer ideas on larger projects, keeping in mind themes, inclusivity, environmental responsibility, weather, and budget or lack of. Slideshow available.
'Textile Art as a Tool for Personal Story Telling' Examples of opportunities I've had to provide Textile Art workshops as a tool to overcome language, social, and self esteem barriers. Impactful and uplifting.This can be helpful for womens groups, youth groups, etc. Consider having me come in as a guest artist for a project with your group.
