To close out the year, I’ve assembled a collection of winter woolies: from polar bears to snowmen to Santa Claus himself! Since this is also the season for giving back, I would like to take this opportunity to share a couple of charity projects I’ve been working on.
Earlier this year I created a series of sculptures for DHG Gallery’s Charity Project: 100% of the proceeds go to the pediatric cancer ward at Meyer Children’s Hospital in Florence, Italy. The project features artwork by a number of other fiber artists as well, so I hope you will check it out!

I also curated an exhibition here in New York for a cause that is very dear to me. A portion of the proceeds from UNICORN will be donated to the Saola Working Group to help save the endangered saola, a beautiful and mysterious creature that might be the closest living thing we have to a real unicorn. Learn more about saola and how you can help conservation efforts at savethesaola.org.
