Why I decided to embroider on rubber….
because my life was hanging on a thread
because it makes ‘sew’ much sense
because I wanted to tread lightly and use what was available
because I needed a challenge
because the act of sewing is meditative
because i fell in love with the process
because rubber is tough and can be seen as masculine
because thread is delicate and an be seen as feminine
because i like the juxtaposition of thread and rubber
because nothing is what it seems.
