Artist Statement:
A quilt or embroidery can convey a unique cultural identity as well as a sense of community. A particular pattern title, color or fabric becomes a reflection of time and place. Through fabricating and re-configuring domestic textiles, the work examines how societies’ means of communication has evolved over time while impacting social ideologies and outlets.
