This series began with the "My America" pieces. The stones I found on the beaches of Rhode Island fascinated me and replaced my use of textile patterning; i.e. the stones provided color, shape and texture. I did nothing to these stones except rinse them. It was important for me to leave them totally as Mother Nature made them. I literally built them "homes" away from their natural environment...homes that I felt were reminiscent of the places from which they came.
