For My Sister

My closest friend and sister-
Paula passed away in 1993.
I made a series of icons
in her memory..
this is one of my favorite ones.

Early influences

As a young girl a good friend
gave me this stack of posters.
They were early Vogue covers
painted by Helen Dryden.
I must have studied these
paintings for 6 years every day.
They had an enormous
influence on my work.

Shoe Story

This is one of my favorite pictures.
These shoes were all re-worked
from found shoes from various
thrift stores, they had light up laces
and sat on a lovely little vintage
child's desk.
NY Gift show circa 2002-

1957 BMW Isetta

this was the ultimate weird car..
the isetta was made in Italy
by a scooter manufacturer
who also made refrigerators,

My friend's work
