During the pandemic of 2020, I am using an 8-inch embroidery hoop to define my area of focus for my studio time. As a new mom, I have adapted to working during 1-2 hour naps, sometimes in my studio and sometimes in the car. I create a small vignette to hold that day’s particular joy, grief and uncertainty. Little by little, I notice and extend natural connections that begin to form, making meaning and witnessing a larger, more complex image appear over time.
