new "Curiouser" work and artist statement from Carolyn...

I have travelled widely and am interested in the lives, beliefs and religions of the many cultures I have visited – but never to Japan. A small Japanese cabinet with drawers has evoked many thoughts and led me down many paths in my research.
Clothing, painting and printing, architecture, beliefs, Buddhists and Zen, haiku, the art of folding and of stitching, tea ceremonies, geisha, parasols and fans, my journey has begun as I work with my fabrics and threads, papers and found objects to interpret this eclectic mix.
