Look at this awesome #studentwork from my 10 week #embroidery class #markoftheneedle @massartce already amazing #drawingwiththread has begun. Join me this weekend for a special #drawingwiththreadclass @maudmorganarts in #cambridgearts

The back of #stitches on my giant piece. Mailing the @embroidery that #inspired this one out to a show today. Preparing to teach a #drawingwiththreadclass this weekend @maudmorganarts - oh and constantly questioning this #lifeasanartist

#studentwork from my #autobiographicalstitches class @eliotschoolcraft .... COME TAKE A CLASS With me. Art New England #summerworkshops are registering now. My #drawingwithstitchesclass is so fun, you learn so much. And for an entire week you are on the beautiful #benningtoncollege campus with studios open until midnight. It’s an #artvacation go to @massartce to find out more.

And now I’m all ready for the student #arrowmont . Their #textiles #artstudio is so dreamy. I’m all set up with #samplers and #embroidery supplies. Let the #stitching begin. #lovemylife

A mere week ago I had just ended an amazing critique, discussion #gathering of #creativesouls where great ideas were shared and begun, #intimate moments on #making #family and #life - as I settle back into life I wonder how do I keep that momentum of making, #gathering and sharing in normal life outside of the cocoon of a place like #arrowmont ? #artistslife #artthoughts

I have a #drawingwiththread #weekendworkshop coming up @maudmorganarts where we tackle questions & #techniques about #drawing #embroidery #textiles #handembroidery #textilearts this is the last time until summer that I will offer this work shop. #drawingwiththreadclass

Here's an experimental piece out of my studio this week as I try out sculptural image transfer for the first time 🖐🏼
I've never felt confident drawing, but blind contour has really captured my attention. It's all about feeling the subject and understanding the lines that make it up 🖐🏼
This is a portrait of my own hand. Understanding my hands and coming to a deeper understanding of their abilities is changing the way I think about making. When I make, I tell stories with my hands. They are my best and only tools 🖐🏼
Big thanks to @joettamaue for introducing me to the power of image transfer in #drawingwiththreadclass this summer. Can't wait to see where these ideas take me 🖐🏼

Just as I'm questioning my path as a #teacher I get the privilege of being with beautiful, talented #students who remind me why I do this. Such powerful #personal work being shared and made at #arrowmont #embroidery #handembroidery #drawingwiththread #drawingwiththreadclass #textileart #craftschoolexperience #fiber

Passus. 2016. pencil, pen and acrylic on BFK.
My mother bought this one as soon as I put it online last year. I’ve been texting her pictures from Arrowmont School of Arts and Class all week, from the #drawingwiththreadclass, because she’s still the first one I want to show the pictures to that I make at school. She always puts it on the proverbial fridge. Easy to follow one’s heart when the people that love you have always celebrated you doing so.

The woman in this drawing comes from a home like I do, with lots of good soil for her roots. She grew them strong and still feels them in her belly wherever she goes on all her adventures. Her mother taught her to see where the magic is hiding, (which is in no less than everything.)

#blindcontour #contour #drawings all set- now we are ready to #stitch #handembroidery #drawingwiththread #drawingwiththreadclass (scroll to see images of the beautiful #contourdrawings done by some of my students) #arrowmont #arrowmontexperience #craftschoolexperience

Of course I decided I needed to do one more #sampler #example for my #embroideryclass next week @arrowmont_school - can you feel me giving myself the eye roll🙄 #negativespacedrawibg #embroidery #satinstitch . There is still time to sign up and join our amazing group for #drawingwiththread #textileart #handembroidery #houseplant #drawingwiththreadclass

Remember this beast of a #sampler exploring #value and #stitching ? I pulled it back out to work on in preparation for my upcoming #embroideryworkshop @arrowmont_school #drawingwiththreadclass -- it's so fun and such #slowwork to play this way. There's still time to sign up and join the class. It's going to be amazing. #drawingwiththread #embroidery #embroideryart #textile #wip #surface

I am so looking forward to my #drawingwiththread class @arrowmont_school in just a few weeks. I love sharing the freedom and possibility in the #embroidered #mark. We have an amazing group but there are just a few spots left. Join us and learn and create and commune #handembroidery #embroidery #textileart #summerartworkshop #drawingwiththreadclass #embroideryart #stitch

My only classes until October are amazing #drawingwiththreadclass es a few spots @arrowmont_school and the Class @artnewengland @massartce is amazing dm for details or go to my website #embroidery #embroideryart #textileart #summerworkshop

Finally finished this sweet #baby #blindcontour #drawing done the first months of P’s life recreated with #handembroidery - symbolically it’s the metaphor of #mothering a young child. It goes by so fast (the contour) but also seems to be made of such long moments of #labor . As the little series developed the flowers on the found linen began to be the nipple of #breastfeeding #embroidery #textileart #motherartist #artistasmother #artistresidencyinmotherhood #drawingwiththread thread REMINDER there are spaces left in my #drawingwiththreadclass at @massartce #artnewengland in Late July where we explore projects just like this.
