Miss Rumphius

2009, Needlepoint, 10"w x 8"h

Our brains work in mysterious ways. Certain facts, experiences, books, names, and phone numbers will never leave us, while family member’s faces can fade away from our memory bank. I decided to call upon my memory and try and recall the illustrations from my favorite children’s books: Miss Rumphius, Good Night Moon, and King Bidgood’s in the Bathtub. These three books were read to me, upon my request, repeatedly.
I turned my recollections into needlepoints, plotting where I thought certain parts of the illustrations
started and stopped.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
