Artists Describing Their Art:
- The color, pattern and weaving of fabric has always been a fascination of mine. Using wool as a medium in art is an extension of this interest that allows me to experience fiber in its simplest form. With fiber I'm able to create artwork that has a tactile quality appealing to my senses at many levels. In my portraits I engage the audience in the emotions of the subject, honoring the subject by portraying qualities that I experience while gazing at the original photograph. World cultures are of keen interest to me and the power that cultural experience exerts to shape society is an inspiration in my art....
- My work is in Fiber, mostly hand-made paper, wood, or hand-dyed silk with surface design. I began working in fibers more than 50 years ago as a child, when I designed and made dolls' clothes! Then I went on to design costumes and clothing for "real people", and my designs appeared in Vogue magazine. When I no longer lived in the US, I could not work as a "seamstress/designer" since I was considered an alien, so I began to put my fibers on the wall instead of the body, making intricately embroidered wall hangings and sculptures. Urged by my friends, I entered juried exhibits and to my surprise, was accepted in a great many of them. Since then, I have worked steadily on my art, "supporting my habit" by working as a free-lance costumer, jewelry maker, designer, office clerk, theatre producer, computer-er, puppet-dresser, photo stylist, baby-sitter and anything else available to me. Through the years, I have received many grants, two residencies and much help from my children so that I might continue my work. Two of my pieces were chosen to be in an exhibit called "9x9x3" at the American Craft Museum ...
- I am sure that people are little aware of the fact that Jute, which is Eco-friendly and 100% Bio-degradable, can be used in so many ways to be used as an item of decoration and also can be used in our day to day activities. These are specialities of rural West Bengal, India and are difficult to find in the open market due to the fact that these art works are created in the remote villages of West Bengal, the major Jute producing area in India.

- My journey as an artist began with my first crayon. I have always been in love with color. Over the years I've developed a passion for lines, forms, space, and the spaces between . Be it paint, inks, dyes, or watercolors, each media excites me. I experiment in diverse styles, allowing the subject, materials, and concepts, to influence the final outcome. My work is often a fusion of opposites -- chance and deliberation; remnants of the past link to the present; fluid pools of color, allowed to drip and layer and develop alongside the thick, structural impasto effects. For me, art is a necessity; a surrendering, a discovery, and a celebration. It transforms thoughts and ideals into dimensional realities beyond the flat surface. The interior process of abstraction suspends me from isolation, and connects me with my most authentic self,as well as the rest of humanity. ...
