For the last two years, I have been designing and making fabric wall decorations, using a combination of quilting, applique, and embroidery techniques. These wall hangings are made in the style of a medieval banner or tapestry, with designs mostly for geeks and nerds of all stripes. My grandmother taught me sewing basics when I was young, 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.
