From the artist: I love combining traditional and non-traditional media. My recent mixed-media explorations incorporate digital manipulations with slow-hand textile techniques. For the past 6 years, I have been working on a two-tiered series of political commentary. Both tiers pair historical illustrations with quotes from public figures to create satirical/ironic commentary. The first tier, my "WISDOM WAFER" SERIES, consists of image transfers on handmade paper embellished with embroidery, beading, and flocking, mounted on ceramic plates. These soon evolved to tier two, "PILLOWS OF DISSENT," using the same techniques to create uncomfortable pillows.
I love researching the images and the quotes. Nothing is randomly combined. The end result, however, generates a multitude of reactions. Just what I want.
