Acrylic, marker, fabric, acrylic painting cutout and embroidery on found placemat

*12.5” x 12.5”  *Note: Dimensions are approximate because of odd shape.

This piece took me a long year to create. Months of hand embroidery resulted in bleeding fingertips and sore hands. As with all of my work, this was a very meditative process. Sometimes embroidering for hours at a time, this piece would take me into a state of peace and comfort. Created using cut-out pieces of paintings, acrylic paint, recycled fabric scraps and thread, this piece has transformed an old striped placemat into a piece of art that is dear to my heart.
