This series is an exploration of patterns used in domestic activities like decorating, wallpapering, and sewing. Many of the stretched canvas pieces are created with recycled canvas slipcovers. Patterns and wallpaper motifs are stamped, stenciled, and sewn onto canvas as a way to perhaps create order from chaos. The designs are added, covered, and revealed again.
