My drawings and text pieces are composed of imagery appropriated from patterned fabric together with machine-embroidered text that I write myself, worked on an industrial sewing machine over days and weeks into formal structures that are also little dramas, full of pattern and life. Process is the transformative agent, synthesizing and subverting the forms and stories contained in the original sources.
