Lake, Lattice, Stone: Requiem for a Garden seeks to celebrate the artist's motherís northwest garden as well as the neighborhood of Union Bay and the marsh she grew up on, and walked past on her way to classes at the UW in the early nineteen forties.

Currently, she lives on Vashon Island and works out of the studio at Quartermaster Press.
