at tafe, there is a constant sense of urgency to create metaphor around your artwork. as an artist, it becomes apparent that by providing meaning to your work, you make the viewer more comfortable and your art becomes more accessible to most.

at home, I just stitch, because I can and because it is sanctuary for me. Finding meaning in this meditative practice is irrelevant. I just do. And really, the viewer is unimportant in my meditation, even if, in the end, the finished product becomes an artwork!
