I am affected by images of dying soldiers and the violence of war.
Eyelet cloth, an inherently feminine cloth is used as both a canvas and a drawn line to convey images of war that are both sobering and whimsical.Images of soldier life and death are on fabrics which evoke feelings of femininity, softness, safety, warmth, beauty, and domesticity - the embroidery and applique- execution is clean, tight and made with precision ensuring that feelings of love and devotion are inherent within each stitch.
Materials: eyelet cloth, machine embroidery, hand embroidery
