Village and Rooted Series

Starting with the long view from my landscapes in the Impressions of Germany series, my work moved towards an exploration of village and communities in a series of quilts with village imagery. These then grew roots and evolved towards the idea of home and settling down (growing roots, or the inability to do so). Although I utilize the sewing machine for much of my work, more recent quilts and textile collages on stretched canvas have begun to incorporate many of the hand skills my mother taught me years ago such as crochet and embroidery. I suppose it should not be a surprise as this sort of community work has been handed from mother to daughter, neighbor to neighbor, friend to friend, for centuries — and it is communities that I am drawn to.
