I just had a visit last week from Nancy Stock-Allen, Editor of Design Traveler magazine, and she did an interview with me to publish for Woman’s History Month on her on line magazine. We talked for a good while at my exhibit in Brattleboro, VT “The Whole Art of Language,” and then she and her [...]
