The inspiration for my art often comes from my travels as I have moved 13 times: residing in 9 states including picturesque Alaska, lived for three years in Italy, and traveled to several foreign countries. Throughout my travels I have taken hundreds of thousands of photographs and experienced many different cultures. My photography has been incorporated in most of my textile art up until my father’s death when I found I couldn’t work in my usual way. I did an abstract piece exploring how the paths for our lives are planned out by our parents in utero and as we grow, we begin to plan our paths. Seldom do our paths end up as hoped. People, free will, and circumstances cause us to veer from our planned paths: much in the same way my art has changed with the loss of one man in my life. I am now on the thirtieth piece in the series.
