“My work is the process of translating a photograph into a textile image made from color blocks of fabric and hand-stitched details. It is important to me that the image is the capture of an organic moment in time where the artistic constructs of color, depth, and composition coalesce. I am driven to recreate that brief instant from someone’s lifetime using traditional, centuries old textile methods, requiring hours of time to be fully realized. The layering of those different views of time into the work is very powerful for me.”
