Since learning to embroider on a deceased grandmother’s tablecloth, my work has been a fascination with & an exploration of the many facets of my ancestry. This includes the contrast between my Protestant European ancestors with my Native American ancestors and their love and conversion to Catholicism. My work usually falls into some aspect of this vast subject matter whether or not I’m fully aware of it at the time of making. My hope is that the work honors my heritage while also showcasing my love for color, pattern and stitch.
