“Water is Life” Quilt Exhibit

My piece “Our Journey” made it’s debut at the U.N. Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland on March 22, 2016.

This exhibit highlights the importance of water as a precious source of life and its impact on the lives of women and girls around the world.

Here are some interesting facts about water collection according to water.org: http://water.org/water-crisis/women-children-facts/
Women and children spend 125 million hours each day collecting water.
Women and girls often spend up to 6 hours each day collecting water.
Women and girls living without a toilet spend 266 million hours each day finding a place to go.
Women and children bear the primary responsibility for water collection.
In Africa and Asia, women and children walk an average of 3.7 miles a day just to collect water.

Take 190 West Arts Festival

The City of Killeen, Texas will be hosting the 5th annual Take 190 West Arts Festival on March 1st, 2014. It promises to be a fun event with a live on site sculpting competition.

Members of the Killeen Civic Art Guild came together to create an art quilt project for this event that will be on display. This was not a fabric art project. Each participating member was given a masonite square to create a work of art in their medium of choice (paint, mosaic, fiber, mixed media etc.), then all the squares were framed as one collaborative art piece. The final result is below. It is absolutely incredible.
