The series is called “Memory” and the content is based on what happens to memory as time progresses.  Focus…fragmentation…fading…..lack of clarity are themes that are depicted in the tapestries.  I am thinking about my 92 year old mom and myself and how memory evolves over time.  The visual elements are a floral design featuring irises echoing  turn of the century styles, William Morris, Louis Sullivan, Arts & Crafts. They are all constructed of cotton warp with wool and silk wefts.
