ABSTRACTS

Drawing influences from the patchwork style of quilting, the Abstract series all begin with a single embroidered tile. The tiles feature iconography and patterns referencing anywhere from pop and contemporary symbols to abstraction and natural imagery. Each tile is individually drawn and designed, digitized and then directly embroidered onto various fabrics. Once the layout and color scheme is formulated, the tiles are wrapped onto individual blocks to then be mounted, creating a grid patterned base. From here, various painting and hand-distressing techniques are applied to create abstract works that are uniquely textural and a medium of their own.
