2010, Collage, 38"w x 50"h

I am drawn to sewing. I like needles and colored threads, small work and tiny stitches – lap work. Some call it piecework. I call it peacework. Recently, I spent some time looking at quilts and especially crazy quilts. I admired the controlled randomness of the construction and the fact that they were usually made of remnants. The idea of using things that are left over, the bits that remain after something is made, has a strong appeal. Pieces of memory making new memories.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
