This work explores journeys and adventure through a simple figure-ground composition. The circles bringing to mind wheels used in human travel. The complexities of these ideas are exposed by the inclusion of mark making and pattern - using both stitch and paint to create depth and movement. The dense quilting creates an enticing texture across the surface of the work.

The final composition is then stitched on to canvas and stretched and mounted on stretcher bars. In the end nearly flattening the textile, mimicking our need to control our actions and experiences.
