Without realizing, recycling has been a part of my life since early childhood. I literally grew up in hand-me-downs which I believe contributed to my obsession with thrift shopping and flea markets, vintage clothing and linens, and basically all things textile. The quilt, with its historical practice of reuse, is a natural choice of medium for my artistic expression as is the reuse of old discarded silk saris from India.
