This piece was created for a fund raising event at IAO Gallery. I used a machine for the embroidery instead of the usual hand stitching. The pieces had to be on paper and it is a touch on the difficult side to hand stitch to paper.
They say create what you know. I find my journey through life as a woman one
of my greatest curiosities. Through my work I am trying to define what it means
to be a woman or an aspect of the female persona and how our experiences are
unique from men. I find it especially meaningful that I include in my work a skill
that was generally practiced by women only, embroidery.
