I initiated this project while thinking of a way to combine my love of sewing with my interest in painting. I liked the twelve-inch small scale format, much resembling a quilt block. The painted collage pieces were assembled over eighth-inch foam sheeting, with stitch detail adding a similar dimension to quilting. To continue this theme, heavy metal separating zippers allow the individual pieces to be joined together in numerous, unique configurations. Many of the over-painted papers are souvenirs from my travels, and significant items, such as torn fabric from my painting pants.
