With this imagery in mind I searched my stash of text. I like text, especially foreign text. Text that doesn't necessarily mean anything to me, it just looks interesting. Because of this, I collect text...so far the collection is fairly limited to English, French, Chinese, Japanese and Korean. It was from this collection that I found a piece...a vintage, rough linen sack with cursive French.
Jumping off the fabric was 'le journey' and I knew where I was going.
Combining African fabrics with this linen, I built an island based on the traditional log cabin quilt block to underscore mankind's most basic and longed for right: HOME.
