DESCRIPTION: Mixed Media, Unframed, Embroidery floss

ARTIST STATEMENT: My grandmother, Jenny, taught me to love needles and thread. She did this by buying me, for my 6th birthday, a stamped cross-stitch pattern whose letters spelled out "The way to a friend's house is never long.” When finished, this piece hung in my mother's house until she died. Returning to the needle and thread I loved so much as a child, I use embroidery floss exclusively as my drawing medium.
