"May you always know how much your family loves you and how being woven together in community makes us resilient and fills our lives with color."

I am experimenting with these family portraits, using a different color to represent each family member. The pieces are inspired by traditional darning samplers and a recent collaboration with local shop, Dutch. I use variations of a simple running stitch to create different patterns and compositions.
