Meeting Martine


Martine House with her piece "Family Entanglements"

No trip to Asheville is complete without a visit to the Folk Art Center. What a wonderful surprise to see Martine House exhibiting there! I've long admired her beautifully stiched work but had not met her personally. We had a chance to visit and talk about the power of art to convey our innermost feelings. Martine and I are definitely on the same page.

Do take time to visit her website http://www.housefiber.com/ Her work is intricately stunning. Click here to read Martine's blog: http://housefiber.blogspot.com

Mary Stori recently wrote about the current focus of Martine's beautiful work on her blog:

Martine and I with her recent piece "Reliquary" which makes a very strong statement "about the future of our planet and what we are doing to it." I share her concern.
