Bone House Series
I began this ongoing series of art quilts to explore my experience with cancer in 2009. I set out to revisit some of the lingering trauma from my treatment, and to look at how I relate to my post-cancer physical self. I experienced my health crisis as a cellular betrayal that forced me into sustained dialogue with physical mechanics and mortality. Once I started the series I had more health problems, and I had to focus on healing as my first priority. The series is expanding in scope to include work depicting processes of the flesh and healing energy.
