  2. this is one of my favorite pieces. I used a lot of hand-dyed and marked fabrics. the background came together very quickly. I like to use a traditional pattern but then put portraiture on top. Some people think I ruin the piece by putting portraiture on top but I enjoy the interaction between geometry and figurative work.
    Thanks for looking. I haven’t updated my work recently–trying to get some things into shows but I don’t like them broadcast before then.
