The Lost Art of Mending 2

ARTIST STATEMENT

My art work explores the intersection of traditional and contemporary quilting in the context of reusing and reclaiming the fabrics of everyday life.  I am a saver and keeper of cloth and I enjoy working with worn and cast off garments and household textiles.  I often use antique or vintage materials and enjoy the idea of working with fibers that have passed through other, sometimes unknown hands. The connection between women, work and textiles is a recurring theme in my quilts.
