Life is a pathway, a road map of sorts, led with people and places and memories, a rich tapestry of learning and experience.

Begin by texturizing a background of soft, hand dyed wool with simple stitching and fabric layering techniques. Build layer upon layer, embellishing your piece with wool, silk velvet, silk dupioni, linen and cotton fabrics.
Experiment with an array of speciality threads using embroidery stitches and stitch combinations, each stitch and new technique adding depth and texture to your work.
