As a resident of New York, I am influenced by the many lines and windows that define the cityscape. Those lines are sometimes continuous, are often interrupted, and make for a fascinating interplay that I like to draw as an urban sketcher. The drawing practice has greatly influenced my printing experience.
All fabrics were created by the artist through direct printing and monoprinting, using a Plexiglas plate, fabric paints and marking tools. Machine pieced. Machine quilted.
