In connection with "Allure of Flowers: Botanical Motifs in Craft, Design and Fashion."The Mint Museum has also asked me to give a talk about my work. It will be at 3:00 on Sunday, April 6, 2014 at the Mint Museum of Art Uptown. It is an honor to be asked to speak and I am looking forward to sharing my perspective about how my work fits into the theme of the show. That Sunday, I hope to see many of you who are long time friends from my days in Charlotte and many new friends as well.
