Creating portraits is my passion. In looking for subjects, some images really speak to me, as did the photo that inspired this quilt. My son took this selfie, and the mood of it spoke of the trials of the time of Covid, which has affected us all. It is dark, yes, but also speaks of hope, which I see in his eyes.
Materials
Commercial and hand-dyed cottons
Techniques
