"[In Skinner's] exquisite book 108 ... each section's text provides just the right amount of illumination to inform readers and viewers, while allowing them to experience the magic and mystery of the work on their own. And the chronology deftly reflects your creative evolution. In design, sequencing, print quality, and materials, the book is an object of beauty. It brings [the] work to life on the printed page so very gloriously."
- Sylvia Wolf, Director, Henry Art Gallery, University of Washington, Seattle, WA.
In her art career, Skinner has had 34 solo exhibitions in 30 years, with participation in multiple invitational group exhibitions. An upcoming solo exhibition opens at Waterworks Gallery, Friday Harbor, WA, on August 5th, 2017.
Skinner divides her time between two custom studios. Working with architect Tom Kundig, the Seattle urban studio has enormous flexibility, allowing multiple medias and functions. The quieter Santa Fe studio, designed with architect Gayla Bechtol, is a modern adobe structure overlooking her horses and mountains beyond the Big Tesuque Canyon.
