“I met Felix Harlan when we were getting our MFAs at Rutgers University in the late 1970's. We reconnected after I moved to NYC in 1979 and with great excitement decided to make an etching together. I was constructing assemblages at the time made out of feminine clothing, toys, yarn, and notions and brought these interests to my first etching. In fact, Felix introduced me to soft ground techniques and I vividly remember 40 years ago pressing lace into the soft wax. Last spring during the time of Covid we decided to collaborate using soft ground again (and of course hard ground too!) as I revisited my interest in childhood, flowers, and found objects in order to tell my story of growing up a girl in America in the 1950's and 60's. After rediscovering the beauty of the etched line, I was inspired to bring my watercolors (unused for decades) to the Harlan & Weaver shop on Canal Street.”
