The vintage repair tag "work to be done" reminds me that we all have work to do and sometimes it is out of our control!
Perhaps it’s because as a kid I had a one box allowance when dad got transferred, I have certainly made up for lost time in the accumulation department since then. Becoming a /mixed media artist only made my stash bigger, so big, in fact that I own a vintage shop and art gallery in Falls Church, Virginia. I revere the craftsmanship, intricacy, and beauty of bygone fabric, fashion and notions. Being able to integrate them into my work so they take a new function as art (rather than end up in a land fill) makes me happy. I am completely self taught from an artistic standpoint. My mother was my primary instructor of all the “old fashioned” art: the embroidery and needlework I enjoy integrating into my work.
