What holds the home together?
The stories contained within.

I love the illustrations in children’s books that show a cut-away view of a house, depicting the interior rooms and the activities of all the inhabitants. In this work I have created a simplified neighborhood inspired by those children’s illustrations and drawn from the row house neighborhood in which I grew up. I chose to depict the inhabitants as birds. The birds and the jars are vehicles for suggesting stories of people and their relationships to their experiences. The homes contain the stories, and the stories contain the people.

The work is created with archival acrylic paints and mediums on fabric. Image-making includes monotype printing, resists, stenciling and direct painting. Collaged and sewn construction with surface machine stitching for texture. The surface is sealed with a coating of acrylic medium.

Finishing: bound and backed with hand-painted fabric. The back has a hanging pocket and a rod, for traditional hanging tapestry presentation.
