Stiching the maps ....

Dear K,
You know me all too well. Anne Wilson is one of my favorite artists. I wrote did a huge research project and huge presentation on her work while in grad school. As you know, I am drawn to fibers and encorporating sewing, embroidery and stichery into my own work. In addition to being strickingly delicate, Anne Wilson hits on another love of mine, topologies. I want to live in her fictional, thread words. Ironically, I discovered a great book in researching for this project: "You are Here: Personal Geographies and Maps of the Imagination". Highly recommended.

Thanks for thinking of me, as always!
