Virtual tour of Not One Woman: Just Tits and Ass.
WMG staff has made extra efforts to share the wonderful work in their current exhibition, Suffra-Jetting, juried with care by Malika Jackson and up through April 4.  

COVID-19 Yo-Yos


Putting my at-home time to good use during the COVID-19 shut-down.
Cutting out more green yo-yos for my Kudzu: Alien Invasion piece. 
I realize I need to purchase Roto-cutter. 
I'm not sure how many will be enough. 
After this batch is sewn, I think I'll start piecing them together.

Suffra-Jetting at Woman Made Gallery


Not One Woman: Just Tits and Ass. 2019
  
I'm thrilled that this piece has been accepted to show at Woman Made Gallery in Chicago. The title of the exhibition is Suffra-Jetting

The book used to create this piece is my undergraduate art history textbook that covered two semesters of art history courses. There is not one woman artist in the entire wrinkled old tome. 
There are numerous female nudes - lots of tits and ass.

Made With Love

Made With Love. Fabric yo-yos, handcarved rolling pin. 2019
I inherited my Aunt Stella Lear-Lasangue's rolling pin. The pin is hand carved from one, solid piece of wood. I remember going to Aunt Stella's and Uncle Clarence's home in Donaldsonville, Louisiana. They lived right on the Mississippi River. We wore our Sunday-best to visit with them. We would go to Sunday mass then have lunch. After lunch we would climb the river's levee to see the Mississippi. 
Good food, good times.
