We are now onto the final week of my exhibition, so it’s time for Part 3 of my Mother Daughter Guidebook: The Conclusion. Last but not least, I would like to take this time to talk about my small works. Naturally, the larger works have a tendency to get more attention by both me and others, yet the small works will always hold a special place in my heart. They were truly the beginning for me, being the place where I developed my skills in both nature-based printmaking as well as sewing. Long before the quilts came into fruition, I first began to show my interest in sewing when I started my fabric collages—and this is what eventually gave rise to the large work, Mother Daughter. In other words, Mother Daughter may have been the journey with my mother, yet it was the small works that started it. And now here we are, a whole body of work.
Thank you again for all those who made this exhibition possible. From Spokane Art School holding the exhibition, to my family, friends and of course mother, helping me along the way. It has been a great honor to have the opportunity to share my work.
