A Dozen Lives

Fiber, Hand and Machine Stitched with Original Photography

34” x 45″


Daily, we each have our own adventure as we move through the world. Here are snapshots of twelve individuals; mundane, but also beautiful and curious – just the way life is.
I love texture whether it is emotional or physical. My stitches and layers of fabric and fiber added over my photos, express those textural aspects of life in a way that my photography alone does not and also unifies the individuals into a common platform of experience.
