Dream City

Lincolndale, NY
“Dream City addresses my lifelong difficulties with sleep and everything that visits me at night: anxiety dreams, flight dreams, death dreams, dreams of home, grief, as well as the annoyance of losing sleep over bathroom trips in the middle of the night! The lizards, which are Native American symbols for dreams, crawl across my quilt, weaving all of the stories together.”
