New Directions…

These are new wall-based assemblages that I am developing. They incorporate magazine clippings sewn to netting, embroidered linen and cotton that I have pieced and then burned and quilted. I use scrambled words and images that I embroider and then shred in some sections. Excited to share this with you.

My favorite things…

I am getting ready to pack all of these favorite things for my installation “Mind/Forest” at the Visual Art Exchange in Raleigh, North Carolina opening on August 22nd. As I started to stack the bundles in the afternoon light, I remembered each journey I went on exploring the color, following the sewing line and ultimately learning to trust myself.

Paper adventures

I have started to experiment with origami paper, cutting and then piecing with a sewing machine into long vines as a part of my “Mind/Forest” project.  Thanks to Al Wong for capturing the fun!  #hollywongart  #alwongart  #installationart  #fiberart  #cutpaperart  #californiaart #sanfranciscoart

“Patterns” Opening at SFWA Gallery

I was so happy tonight to see friends and colleagues at the opening of “Patterns”.  A photograph from my “Mind/Forest” series was included in this group exhibition at SFWA gallery, curated by artist and educator Judy Shintani.  I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting Judy this evening.  It was also amazing to see James Dilley, MD, the Executive Director of the UCSF Alliance Health Project who has inspired and given hope to so many.
