I make art quilts that are portraits. Exaggerations and distortions
reveal complex emotions and motivations. A secondary stitched
portrait appears. Unexpected relationships of lines and shapes
produce unplanned complexity, creating additional levels of interest.
These double portraits symbolize lives not lived, careers not
followed, lovers not married, children not born. Ambiguity, mystery,
and a sense of having a life of its own are goals for work in the
Big Head Series.
