He's the C-U-R-A-T-O-R......

In Scotland, the term "curator" is used to mean the guardian of a child. I can relate to this definition, for me my work IS like my child -- sometimes so much goes into giving it life.
So here you see my dear nephew Jahfre Colbert...the curator! He was kind enough to use his curatorial skills to arrange my quilts (babies) in my studio space. He has been so helpful in getting my artwork presented in the right way in my studio/salon space.

This awesome young man has worked part-time at various galleries in the Orlando area while attending the University of Central Florida. He's going to paint the wall at the left, jet black for some extra pop to feature the black and white quilts on this wall. He has designed an ingenious method of attaching the work to the wall.... This will be the next step when he returns in a few weeks.


  1. Looks wonderful Valerie. Where are you going to show your work?

  2. Oh yes! I will be part of a big exhibit locally.
