above - a detail of I Lived On Air, my daughter April's journal in cloth of her year of artist residencies. 
She had to move so many times, and each of the different arrangements of striped cloth represent the variety of beds she slept in during 2017.  So pleased that April and I are both in this important exhibition.  I think that is pretty exciting.
