I like the idea of using a frame in these images primarily due to the kind of media I work with. I'm interested in our perceptions of media and how we label them. Are these works primarily digital? Are they photographic? Are they fiber art? By adding a frame I am also poking fun at the artworld while exposing some of the recent conversations on the art verses craft movement.

In many ways these works were ultimately inspired by my mother. With the loss of her memories I began examine the idea of memory and how we document memories through images, interactions and materials. I began really looking at some of the old photographs and other ephermera I had collected over the years. Ultimately I think of my quilts as creating new memories from old ones (our perception of the photograph and the creation of a somewhat familiar object also reinforces that idea.)
