There are many layers and textures in my world, all that have been graciously accepted.
As art can be, life is full of layers and textures, and if you are one of the fortunate ones, richness too.
I come from a family who takes pride in creativity, detail, craftsmanship and tradition. My grandmother sewed and quilted. My grandfather restored a historical old floor loom from our family and taught himself to weave on it. My family collects handmade quilts covered in embroidery details. Our homes are nests for objects that are infused with the spirits of those lost or experiences fleeting. From these relationships and objects, layers of experience are born and intertwine.
