Happy May!

Yesterday the 35th annual May Day Parade and Festival was held in Minneapolis, a creation of the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theater. This event inaugurates spring for many a Minnea-politan, and the day was glorious. After the parade, people enjoy a spring pageant in nearby Powderhorn Park.

I use the materials and techniques of the Japanese art of katazome (paste resist stencil dyeing) to capture my experience of nature. My work celebrates daily meetings with the wild birds, plants, and lake breezes of my local urban surroundings.
