I have had a glorious birthday and had so many wishes for my birthday ....who would have thought I would still be here and ready to make art each day. The Grill Deli celebrated last night ...Kids Night.... with an ice cream birthday cake.....yummy yummy yummy! Ken and I had a great dinner ...Erin sent her delicious caramels...Cole made me a beautiful funny Rock n Roll birthday card...he drew me skinny!!!! Tina and the girls came down last night and we have plans for a girl's night out real soon. I have had wonderful visitors with hugs and kisses in my studio. There is a prospect of an important commission on my horizon...I am so excited and thrilled to be creating another public Art piece. I am sharing some of the photos from last night and today....the collages are simply superb! I am working on another donation for The Works Hatsoff Fund raiser...this is the very first time I will not be here to volunteer for Howard's dream. I am going to Tucson ...to be with Cyd and work with her this time. We hope to go to Phoenix to check out the landscape and possible exhibit next year. So many gifts ...I am totally overwhelmed by the loving support I have been receiving....the gifts of friendships, hugs and smiles!!! Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
I am an artist who makes her marks with a needle and thread. My visual journals give birth to my quilts and are the evidence of my existence. The dialogue between the viewer and the art allows me to integrate my historical, present, future voices, thus communicating with all generations. It is my purpose in the making of my art to guide one to discover a self-actualization of the human spirit--an ongoing conversation between the artist and the viewer. I cherish my freedom to speak through my dyed fabrics, beads, embellishments, and found objects. This visual fiber text has helped me discover a serene appreciation for my own being and often calms my spiritual soul in today's chaotic stream of life.
Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart has been making her works of art for more than 25 years. She has traveled and shown her work in Australia, Mexico, New Zealand, France (Paris), England (London), Italy, and Greece as well as throughout the United States.
