“My trip to Japan last January has inspired refl ection on how the weather punctuated the sights and experience. How the light rain on the water in
a garden made the memory more perfect and watching the falling snow from inside the train was magical. I realized that the weather—in this case
cold, gray, rainy, snowy, as well as sunny at times—was all part of what made my journey more poignant and memorable.
“‘Kyoto: Kaku-dōrō’ was inspired by photographs from my trip. I wanted the piece to be reminiscent of a block print, so minimal fabrics
and limited detail are used to create the image on a silk organza layer. Th is was layered over a sunprinted background and machine quilted.”
