Artist Statement

I found a piece of fabric depicting the landing on the moon of Apollo 16. In the end I only used a tiny strip of the fabric. It was enough to imagine the rest of the quilt; the vastness of the universe, the structure of the moon surface.


Fabric collage, quilting, colour pencil.


Commercial fabrics, colour pencil, fabric medium, Swarovski crystals, metal specs.
