Artist Statement

Harrison “Jack” Schmitt was the twelfth astronaut to step foot on the lunar surface during his 12 days in space. In my 4-dozen year, I met Jack and heard him discuss his work as a geologist studying the moon using current lunar data from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. In my art I explore themes of time, texture, and connectivity.


Whole cloth free motion quilted, hand painted, hand embroidered.
