Two Shows and Three Fish

I've been sequestered this whole month in my home studio preparing for two shows in February. The Twenty-First Annual Caribbean Fine Art Exhibit at the Good Hope School will take place February 15-18, 2008, and I'll be one of about 60 artists showing our stuff at this, the largest art show on St. Croix.

Beginning on February 9 and for the rest of the month, I'll have a solo exhibit at Cultural Creations of the Virgin Islands, a new gallery that opened in Frederiksted a few months ago.

I'm almost ready for both shows. And yesterday I completed a quilt that sat on my design wall for about a month. I created the three fish, and then waited weeks until I knew what to do with them. I'm happy with the results. Here's a preview of the full quilt:


And here's a close up of the stitch work involved:

Hi Jamila,
Lovely, quilt work- colors,textures and technique. Found you on a link to Livin' on St Croix. We were both at Creque Slow Down dinner the night Frank was the chef!
Good luck with your upcoming show- your work is beautiful.
