"The Great American Road Trip" series features fiber art pieces colorfully depicting vintage cars and trucks “traveling” all over the United States. The inspiration behind the show is my experience as a mother of young children, feeling trapped at times, lacking the freedom to go where-ever, when-ever! I chose to feature vehicles because the car is a symbol of total freedom. You can jump in and go anywhere at a moment’s notice. The nostalgia of the antique vehicles from 1940-1970 is an important aspect of my work. The intention is to evoke a sense of “the good old days”. Conveying the idea of being young and free and perhaps of “simpler” times.

Most importantly “The Great American Road Trip” series is uplifting. The pieces are brightly colored, cheerful images of places we can all relate to, or places we would love to go.

*$25 donations to the artist get a print of one of the Great American Road Trip pieces or an animal print at the opening event only.
