The Guardians, 2022, featured four figures that are freehand machine stitched. Three of the figures have bird heads and one gracious fish crow woman has wings. Hand embroidery has been used to emphasize the pattern from the narrative toile scene fabric to give these figures a powerful feeling of strength as well as transparency. Bird women are appliqued and reinforced stitched on decor fabric that is stretched and attached to a vintage wooden embroidery hoop measuring 23” X 23” X 1.5” . This piece was created in 2022.
