Artist Statement: "I created this self portrait inspired by the painting style of Chuck Close. I first created the image using paint chips on a 1/2" grid, then I transferred the concept into fabric. Free motion quilting using multiple layers of thread rings adheres the circles to the pieced squares. Over 120 colors of fabric and 56 colors of thread were used to create the illusion. No software, paint or fusible products were used."
