Tahoe Tribune - 1979.
After a year long trip back packing around the world I returned to South Lake Tahoe and started working as a member of a six artist team working on a State of California funded Community Art Development Project .

Yemen Article about Darleen - 1986.
Yemen is an artist’s delight. The women’s attire is colorful with patterns and exotic designs. From these images I painted a series of semi-abstract paintings portraying the country’s regional costumes. 

Oxford Mail - 1987.
Leaving Yemen to live in Oxford, England , where Jan, my husband went to complete his Doctorate at the University , gave me the chance to establish a small textile business. I imported hand woven fabric from Morocco, dyed it and made fashion clothing which was sold around the country at exhibitions.

“Interbilim” Newsletter – Central Asia - 1995.
Aid to Artisans (ATA)is a non-profit US organization dedicated to creating economic opportunity among artisans and communities around the world. Darleen worked with ATA in Central Asia on a USAID funded program to help local non-governmental organizations strengthen their capabilities to function effectively in a sustainable manner and to help them enhance members’ abilities to sell their folk art locally and internationally. 

Newspaper article about exhibition sponsored by a princess of the Jordanian Royal Household.
“Arab Medina’s in Batik” was an exhibition of my work showcasing the architecture of Jordan. The show also displayed my hand painted clothing and home decorating items. 

Jordan Arts and Crafts Show - 1998.
This was a group showing with two other women. There is a vibrant women’s art community in Jordan which is challenging to gain membership of. Most women show their work in small private locations to invited guests only. It was a privilege and a pleasure to become part of this small elite group.
