drawn with sharpie on a king-sized bed sheet.

I work with bed sheets, blankets and quilts to further the connection between my art and the corporeal, domestic, and intimate.

By working on both sides of the bed sheet, the ink seeps through the fabric at different strengths creating a distinct front and back side, much like fabric embroidery.
