My very first piece of Neuro art. A lot of folks ask how I started doing these.... well, I was invited to participate in a fiber art show at a local gallery and I wanted to do something different. My partner Izzy Gesell, who is a motivational speaker and Improv guru suggested I think about brains. I started looking at functional maps of the brain and used a crazy quilt technique on this - the second one would be all embroidered and the 3rd is where I started incorporating fabric collage which is now my technique of choice. Every time I made one I learned something new about how the brain works and became more and more fascinated.... which continues today. That’s my story. I’m getting ready for a solo show that opens 2/1 and will be sharing here all the pieces that will be going up on the gallery wall - a virtual show for those who aren’t local to western Mass. Enjoy. If you are local come to the opening 2/1 to see the real deal. Link in profile will take you to my website - click over to my events page for all the info!
