Opera Navale



sacrificing in order to find solace
we find ourselves with the overgrown laurel, the stoic pine, the shy maple, the sharp blackberry, the pretty lilac, the willful locust and the helpful camellia… and we are grateful.

Eight Doorways, a site specific installation at The Maverick Art space in downtown Burien Washington. Over almost three months I created work at my home studio and at the space. While I was working in the space I had a few really wonderful conversations, so grateful for that. Thanks to The Burien Parks and Recreation and The Maverick for this wonderful opportunity to share what I do with the community that I live in. The installation will be on display until March 31st. Best time to go see it is in the evening.

Made this installation for “Illuminated Orphans” show last night in Seattle, it was inspired by my mom who has passed 19 years ago.

She asked me once to make her a dress for my dad’s company picnic, I made her a long colorful dress from African fabrics.

My dad was embarrassed but she loved it and wore it to the event, there all the African ladies grouped around her and asked who made it.

She seemed to be happy to say it was her son.

52 years, I miss her so very much, I try to keep her close to me with the good memories we had together.
