We love Jane Sassaman's work, but we never thought it was "sinister". What do you think?

Artist's Statement for Johnny Jump Ups: "I love to abstract the designs I see in nature, especially plant forms. The distinct characteristics of Johnny Jump Ups seemed to have real graphic possibilities. So this is where I landed...larger than life, rather formal, and a bit sinister."

Johnny Jump Ups by Jane Sassaman won First Place, Appliqué, Small, sponsored by World of Quilts Travel, at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2019.
