Commercial cottons, batiks; machine pieced, quilted, appliquéd.Artist's Statement:
When I was a young child, I heard a joke that went, “Why do elephants paint
their toenails red?” The punch line was, “So that they can hide in cherry
trees.” The joke was then followed by the question, “Have you ever seen an
elephant in a cherry tree?” Since I hadn't, I was assured that it was
because of those red toenails. My whole life since then, every time I see a
cherry tree I look carefully, trying to find an elephant.
Sometimes I paint my toenails red. And when I am alone, with just my toes
and me, I wonder if my family and friends know where I am. I wonder if they
are searching in the cherry trees.
