What connects these images together?  It’s rather like a puzzle. I search for those elements that “fit” together, creating a narrative that brings them to life.  Why do I print these digital images on fabric?  I am drawn to the tactile nature of this medium and our associations with the quilt.   Quilts embody the history and values of their makers.  They have a personal history and a collective past. These unfolding stories are like artifacts lifted from an imaginary place and time.  Every person has a story.  It is up to you to imagine what their memories may be.
