In Boats They Fled 2007 full & detailI enjoy adding text to my work. I have quilted an entire poem on the front of a piece. It's not meant to be read. It becomes texture, something to be felt. Sometimes I use photo transfers, or thermal fax silkscreens of interesting writing or symbols to add metallic letters. I developed an automatic writing I dubbed 'wenscript' for lack of a better name. It involves writing with acrylic ink, paint or just stitching. I simply just start to write and keep going, without making any effort to make 'words', making a suggestion of communication.
