For me, 2020 has brought profound loss. I’ve had two shows canceled when the galleries closed. I’ve lost income due to being furloughed from my job. I’ve lost my sister Jackie, who passed away due to cancer.
In response, I began stitching abstract daily embroideries using the technique of negative space embroidery. The unstitched spaces speak of all that’s disappeared from my life this year. Daily embroidery has been a way to create something positive out of the loss and fragmentation of 2020.
