Small pieces

I think of most of my small pieces rather like short stories.  For me they have an intensity which needs to have a distinct outlining edge of a frame.  I prefer to use acrylic boxes which provide a defining line while leaving the content an uncluttered clarity.

The small pieces range more widely in technique and materials.  I use my signature running stitch, but can sometimes involve stones, wire mesh, paper, or felt as well as cotton and silk in the construction
