For six years I have been working with stitched forms as part of collages. This began as a simple desire to stitch papers – readily available papers. I used the faces from the blue “Lost and Missing Children” cards we see in the mail and on milk cartons. The stitched pieces evolved into small children’s garments and flat garments with exaggerated features. I had to THINK about lost children! The addresses on the cards suggested the proportions of the hanging forms. Each piece grew from the materials at hand and elicited heartwarming responses from viewers. Ideas and inspirations which come from the use of frontal faces continue to flow – and hang, creating the various series in this slide show.
