I celebrate the beauty of architecture around me and stitch skyscrapers, buildings, homes, bridges and fire escapes. Reclaimed and repurposed materials such as vintage linens, fabric scraps, and plastic shopping bags are in my paint box. I collage and layer, sketch and stitch by hand and machine. My camera helps me capture the beauty around me, and Photoshop helps rearrange what I see. I use my sewing machine for thread sketching and then spend many hours of meditative hand stitching on all the intimate details.
