I paint silk, throw pots and collage poetry books & cards in my enchanted adobe studio in Pilar, New Mexico.

At the Sacred Heart Cafe, I make art to feed the hungry heart. Open all night, a warm place to wander and browse, savor and enjoy.

Custom Wedding Silks


Today I finished a gorgeous custom wedding silk banner for Linda and Joyce. They have been partners for 35 years and will be getting married at the end of the month. Best wishes fly to them! Here is a photo of their custom silk, with a quote from Martin Luther King. Size is 44" wide x 36" tall.

Thanks for commenting on my chuppah. The size for that one ended up being about five feet square. It was held up by four long bamboo poles, carried in by four people, who stood during the wedding to hold it up. Underneath it, the wedding couple and the rabbi.

Best wishes for your daughter!
What are you making hers from?

The Value of Play in Creativity

"The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves."
