When I was growing up on a dairy farm in rural Wisconsin I thought I didn't know any artists. I thought artists were crazy dead white guys from Europe who cut off their ears. I didn't realize that I was surrounded by artists everyday, who worked in fibers. They sewed quilts, crocheted everything, and they could generally could make anything. I have very vivid memories of my great grandmother creating a crazy quilt, which inspired a series of painting honoring these artists and her. My series, called "Everyday Use" (after a short story by Alice Walker), now includes 30 paintings.
