“Darkness cannot drive out darkness,
only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate,
only love can do that.”

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

All of us have the right to live as we are, without pretense, without persecution, and with passion.

Here are portraits of some of my idols who have “swam against the tide” at some time or another, emerging from the water, dry, and strong and true.

I taught myself embroidery back in 1999, having pawed through my great-grandmother’s floss as a young boy. Each portrait is one-of-a-kind and 100% hand done. This is the first thing I do in the morning and the last thing I do at night. I live in Frenchtown (Downtown) St. Louis with my husband Bill, and our two Pugs.
