I love the beauty of the natural world, and I am fascinated by the ways in which we try to capture and hold on to it. That is the story I tell. I use an embroidery technique that I developed, borrowing from needlepoint and crewel traditions to create a style that is uniquely my own.

Description

“I make stitched pictures using a technique of my own. First, I outline the design onto embroidery canvas. Next I stitch free form, filling in color and shading with cotton floss. I go over each area repeatedly, adding a new color with each pass, until the area is filled. This is a deliberate, meditative process, one that evolved over years of working with cloth.”
