The Tapestry series (of which Persia 14 is part) is an exploration of the simple beauty that surrounds us. I’ve started my work with still life and have explored architecture. I’ve discovered that the water and the sky have a large impact on my personal life with respect to anxiety and depression.
In the Tapestry series, I’ve discovered how others perceive beauty and how they tell their stories. Persian carpets and how they are made are passed down from one generation to the next like oral histories. The deft hands create miniature gardens or tribal designs that given them their purpose and identity. My digital manipulation gives a modern twist to an ancient idea.
