For me, stitching and writing arise from the same mysterious source. I use stitches and invented language symbols, glyphs, as parallel abstract forms. Glyphs are wholly invented and one-of-a-kind. There is no alphabet and there is no translation. Writing and stitching materialize the human impulse to make a mark, to leave an impression, to influence, to contribute, to communicate, to accomplish.
