The one unconventional thing I do is to use the embroidery stitch as a functional quilting stitch. I like the fact that both sides of my work are marked with the slow process of coloured stitching. The pieces are documents of time spent.
I ask myself “what kind of objects are worth bringing into our world today?” It is not enough for me that my work be beautiful. It is important that it carry meaning as well. I’m a lover of metaphor and have found a many-layered vehicle of communication in the embroidered quilt.
