I was recently asked to write about myself/my work. Here's a snippet. "At the age of five, I was given a Philadelphia Eagles blanket for Christmas from my parents.  It was a gift intended for my brother who had died in early November of that year. My grandmother would sometimes exhume an unfinished counted cross-stitch of The Last Supper, complete except for the faces because my grandfather died before he finished it.  We still had an afghan made by my great-grandmother who died in 1945, which inevitably brought to mind the photograph we had of her sitting by a window with the afghan on her lap, and the facts that she bore 14 children and lost nearly half of them to illness.  And then there was the pervading Catholicism, undeniably chock-full of intriguing textiles. Forced to be an “altar boy” and attend thirteen years of Catholic school, I was enamored with textiles like the Shroud of Turin, second class relics, altar cloths, the purificator, vestments, the family baptismal gown with our names hand-embroidered by my mother, and so on.  All of this taught me that textiles are implicitly charged with all sorts of significance and purpose."
