Inspired by Nina Lise’s quilt that she
sent to the Festival of Quilts in
Birmingham, UK, I was thinking
of summer in the city.
One of the things I enjoy seeing
always is graffiti. I know it annoys
some and I certainly don’t condone
hate messages, but I am talking about
pure drawing on walls that
to me brighten’s the city landscape.
If often think of graffiti as urban speak,
a way for those who don’t always have
a voice, maybe never have a voice, to
speak and say hey we are here.
Drawing as a way of saying we are alive.
In the spirit of both Nina Lise’s quilt and
graffiti and my continued exploration of
this weaving that I am making, I used the
back of a Kashi frozen pizza box and some
recycled magazine pages that had been glued
together to create my version of summertime
