“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.”
