I am only 3 inches taller than these frames

It's not so much that I am short, although I am that.  I top out at 60 inches in height, give or take a decimal or two.  But these frames top out at 57 inches.

Heavy duty framing!  And I mean HEAVY. These things weigh a ton.  But it is so good to see them framed!

These are part of the His Suit, Hirsute, Power Suit project for which I continue to seek funding.  In addition to these singular pieces, there are triptychs that were developed to be the surface of three dimensional objects that will loom at the center of an installation.  So, I am now beginning to frame the parts that are framable while I await grant results and seek yet more funding sources.

exhibitions and websites

Most of the activity in the studio has been on the Wearing My Age Project.  I have surveyed 168 people about their attitudes toward their work clothing.  I have learned to digitize embroidery and am now draping a dress form to make clothing to carry the messages.  Follow the project on

Meanwhile, I have been working diligently on the new website...again.  I have added a calendar and you can expect to see a pretty thorough re-design soon.  The work above Closeted #5 is going to be showing in the  8th annual University of Michigan Alumni Exhibition entitled Unintended Consequences, Jul 14 – Aug 2, 2014 at the Slusser Gallery, Ann Arbor, MI (map)
