While living in Nashville, TN the year after my three-year residency at the Appalachian Center for Craft,I worked diligently on a body of work to be exhibited for the month of July 2006 at the TAG Art Gallery, specializing in Outsider and Folk Art. Encouraged by the nongraded education (as in age, ability and evaluation), interdisciplinary lean, and diverse rotation of teachers at craft schools, I confidently approached ideas with a wider cast of materials and objects. I continued with concepts of protective boundaries employing thorns, shells and seed husks, however, the work more so referenced the human form rather than the animal, incorporated human made objects as a result of the dense city environment that surrounded me and addressed the human psyche rather than physical vulnerability.
