1. I love functional art objects.
2. I wanted to make something quickly, to oppose the slow and deliberate process of embroidery.
3. Stanley Lewis was always telling me to trying painting on objects like vases and rocks.
4. I am getting ready for a show at Isadore Gallery with Dorothy Frey, opening in August, and I decided that I wanted to see the visual contrast between painted plates and my embroideries on the gallery wall.
