I stitch my stories as maps. I call them Textile Topographies. They provide a fitting metaphor for the terrain of experience; its movement, its change, and its challenges. Migration: Precious Cargo is an artist’s traveling bag, shards of a town, and times that blend joy and loss into the complex directions of roads well-traveled. It is a look at impermanence and also containment—a celebration of rites of passage on the heart and memory.
