    Free-motion embroidered drawing stitched on translucent organza.  The work is floated away from the wall creating a cast shadow. Both images subtly moving as the fabric shifts. My intricate drawings reflect on the complexities found in the natural world and the essential qualities each contributes to the whole, echoing the importance of diversity in maintaining, not only individual health, but the health of communities and ecosystems.
