Last night, we launched the 8th and last issue of Wild Apples, a Journal of Nature, Art and Inquiry. Started 5 years ago by Linda Hoffman, Kathryn Liebowitz, Susan Edwards Richmond and Sophie Wadsworth, this exquisite journal has inspired, captured and transported both its readers and contributors for many seasons. I've had the privilege of contributing as a writer and artist to several issues, and the honor of being on the Board of Advisors. Treat yourself to exceptional beauty and wisdom by purchasing a copy of Wild Apples. Both the new issue and back issues are available at www.wildapples.org
I'm a visual artist, working primarily in fiber creating fabric collage and art quilts. I also create mixed media, often with natural and found objects. And monoprints find their way into my work. Photography is also something I do quite often, sometimes for its own sake, sometimes as a tool for my work with cloth. I have an art studio at Western Avenue Studios in Lowell, a vibrant community of more than 150 artists. After working in public radio for about 25 years (primarily at WGBH-FM in Boston)I re-discovered my artist self. I'm still working sometimes as a narrator and voice-over talent, primarily for Descriptive Video Service (DVS) at WGBH, which produces a narration track for blind people on the major PBS shows like NOVA, American Experience, Masterpiece Theater, Nature, etc. I love being outdoors, and much of my fiber art reflects my life-time love affair with nature.
