These textile works were created during the COVID-19 global pandemic using remnant textiles and notions. "Woven Community" started as a collection of rainbow scraps from various projects gathered together to decorate the front gate of the Alex Theater in Glendale in honor of Pride, and the idea grew to build an old style rag rug from the fabrics. This piece was part of the online exhibit "Rise" by Create Magazine. "Justice" and "Vote" were created with donated embroidery floss and reclaimed textiles and notions, and were directly inspired by the events leading up to the 2020 US election. "Justice" was shown at Brea Gallery's Made in California 2021 exhibition. The first "Joy" was part of Kate Carvellas' "Exposition D'Art Miniature", a virtual showing in a scale model farmhouse Kate built during the pandemic. She then invited artists to share work no larger than 3" wide. The exhibit was written up in the online magazine Art and Cake LA. This piece sold, and the second "Joy" was commissioned afterwards.
