Artist Statement:

Various elements came together, and it surprised me to discover that my layout was basically a grid, and the essence of the design was what would be considered “Traditional”!  There are my usual (or unusual) techniques present – metal work and handmade silk paper enhanced with intense stitching, but these are punctuated with traditional blocks and trapunto work.  And… can you find the cabbage butterfly, snail and ladybug?
