“Through the medium of embroidered narratives I honor the lives of Nantucket women, as well as the island’s architecture and events. The embroideries tell stories, humble or grand, historic or contemporary, which contribute to the rich fabric of Nantucket life….I use dye painting, hand embroidery, handmade needle lace, applique, beadwork, gold leaf, carving, and quilting. In creating each unique piece I encourage the observer to stop, focus, and become involved in the intricate details”
