I wanted to create a luscious blend of fabrics, papers, found objects, and plastics as a metaphor for my life. Some items are partially hidden, waiting to be discovered. The fabric alone has history: a discarded linen tablecloth, rusted, pieced, and heavily stitched. The entire work forms a tapestry of how I reveal my own life history—slowly and reluctantly.
