This piece evolved from a piece of palm fiber. Living in Florida and having a place in the North Carolina hills I am always in awe by the beauty of both places. In this piece I wanted to bring together both places. I used antique material, felted the palm fiber into the green wool which creates hills and mountains. I added patch work of fabric which always reminds me of the mountain women during the time of the depression in NC. I added free form machine and hand embroidery to reflect roads and streams. This piece is a sort of arial view of my North Carolina.
