I have been fascinated by the possibilities of embroidered knitting for many years. Knits and purls are truly a magnificent canvas for embellishing. I'm drawn to the notion of using the structure of the underlying stitches to explore the addition of modern embroidered stitches, influenced by techniques from around the world throughout the ages. To date, I've been focused on adding embroidery to pieces which will ultimately be worn, meaning that the artistic potential within this realm has been limited to ensure ultimate wearability. The pieces you will find here will be canvases that I have created without this restraint, allowing me to truly explore color, texture, shape and dimensionality within the merging of the two mediums.
