I spent some time exploring the wonders of the Southwest and   became totally enthralled with the ancient cliff dwellings at various locales.  The dwellings with their numerous ladders and the rich colors of the canyons were the inspiration for the Ladders series.   Ladders, along with Portals and Windows, ask the questions "where are we going?" and "where have we been?",  with endless opportunities to choose how to color our own personal journeys.

These mixed media fiber constructions combine hand-dyed and painted cotton and silk fabrics, fused sheers, screen-printing, metallic and rayon threads, heavily machine embroidered and quilted.
