Artist Statement

The Character of the Old Man and his dogs from the movie Moonstruck as they head out to see the beautiful full moon. The movie is a favorite in my house and the lines are quoted periodically as they have a truth in them that is typically Italian-American. The manipulated background with its folds and creases creates the evening sky.


Raw edge applique, monoprinting, painting.


Commercial fabric, hand painted and printed fabric, paint, colored pencil, Inktense.
