especially those we have loved dearly?
I create dolls to remember.
Ladies a plate uses my mother's beautiful table linen to honour women of her generation.
How do we remember those who have died tragically, unnecessarily,
especially those who cannot defend themselves?
I stitch and meditate.
Angels of gold are a stitch by stitch contemplation of the children who died in the massacre
at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
How do we remember those who have died protecting me, in sometimes futile campaigns of war?
I use textiles to create a visual memory, a place to pause and give thanks.
My ANZAC series are a grateful tribute.
How do we remember our ancestors, those whose lives we embody?
I have made dolls out of their clothing and manchester. Nana and Gran are an example.
Lest we forget.
