Pisces Woman 17 - Detail, 2010
Long ago I did tapestry weaving and tried to sustain a sense of comedy. It was very difficult. But once I started making dolls and did my first Pisces Woman (I am a Pisces!), the ability to be comical and laugh at myself was so easy and natural. I continue to make Pisces Women in every type of textile figure I attempt. Pisces Woman 17 was made to exhibit at the Twisted Fish Gallery in Elk Rapids, Michigan. You'll see my self-portraits which continue this look at myself and the world around me.
