These compositions, built from the rudimentary shapes of sacred geometry and painstakingly sewn from spools of brightly-hued thread, address both pure design and the meditative, mantra-like implications of a repeated action.  A handcrafted quality underscores their humanity and the love-labor of their creation while adding dynamism through the laid-back order of the surfaces.
