Sampler: 2009

I’ve personalized it and made the Sampler a way to give recognition to the permutations of Home.

The themes of domesticity and pop culture meet inside this new body of work. Embroidery is a painstaking act of domesticity. The Sampler was used as a guide for young children to remind them of the stitches they learned. I’ve personalized it and made the Sampler a way to give recognition to the permutations of Home. Instead of bible versus, that were traditionally stitched, I’ve used modern phrases such as ‘Dude’ and ‘Right on!’

Home isn’t necessarily a collection of things or even what you do while you do while you're there. But things remind us of home. Home is at once, a physical and a mental place.
