A Love Letter to My Father

A detail of a much larger quilted sculptural installation of my father's room at a scale of 1:5.  An investigation into how our personalities become embedded into our surrounding in the selection of artifacts that we both use and display and how we take comfort from this.  I used a quilting technique as I wanted to figuratively wrap my father in his familiar surroundings when he was in hospital.
