Eucalyptus bark at a friend's house, Woodland Hills, CA. As soon as I saw the
tree, I knew I would make a textile and exactly which fabrics I would use.
My mother's 1960s wool coat, transitioning from garment to art.
I love the two-tone coral/gray, shiny/matte satin lining. Construction
details-- inseams, hems, edges cut with pinking shears-- are kept intact
and used as-is in the textile.
