I call these pieces textiles because portions of each is made of paper and embellished with hand sewing, beading and embroidery like a carefully constructed quilt. I adore things made of cloth and collect beautifully crafted clothing and bedding. Here I have used either handmade paper or fabric as a layer giving definition to the world that surrounds each figure. Aprons, guitars and construction cranes populate these stories where mystery and humor walk hand and hand.
