bridge, 2006, needlepoint lace, cotton, 15.5 x 2 x 1, Car, 2008 needlepoint lace, cotton 1 x 0.75 x 2.5, house, 2007, needlepoint lace, cotton, 1.5 x 1.5 x 1.25, attachments I (detail), 2005, needlepoint lace, cotton, 4.5 x 4

this is another amazing artist whose work i first saw at fiberart international, 2007 and rediscovered when i visited fiberart international this year in pittsburgh (see here for the fiberart international post and here, here and here for posts about other artists i encountered during this trip). i was and still remain impressed with the intricacy of the tiny worlds she creates in the tiniest needle lace stitches. these extremely intimate pieces become room sized installations when lit correctly as to make use of the shadows. to see these pieces in person is the best way to appreciate them...see more here.
