Stenciled, marbled, printed and over dyed papers from around the world are cut, pieced and then stitched using a zig-zag sewing machine. Once combined, the papers are reinvented into a composition of rich new patterns, vivid colors and striking textures. The image is then completed with a border, also of paper, and the result is a one of a kind paper art quilt.
I wake and spend the last hours of darkness with no one but the moon. She listens to my complaints like the good companion she is and comforts me surely with her light. But she, like everyone, has her own life. So finally I understand that she has turned away, is no longer listening. She wants me to refold myself into my own life. And, bending close, as we all dream of doing, she rows with her white arms through the dark water which she adores.
