For the last two years, I have been designing and making fabric wall decorations, using a combination of quilting, applique, and embroidery. These wall hangings are made in the style of a banner or tapestry, with designs mostly for geeks and nerds of all stripes. My grandmother taught me sewing basics when I was a child, but when I decided to make my wall banners I had to learn a whole new and complicated set of skills. Now I'm trying to take those skills and expand my work and artistry into something more.I have lived in Washington, DC for ten years, but I only recently started being a DC artist. My house is right near the PG County border, just a few blocks from Mt. Rainier, and I'm happy to be a part of a local artist community.
(No upcoming events.)
