My work is heavily influenced by Pop Art. Artists like Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, and Jeff Koons have influenced me for a long time. For this series of pieces, I wanted to appropriate popular images from the Pop Art movement and re-imagine them in fabric, embroidery, and thread. The Pop Art series is a combination of all these elements into something entirely new. This section of the catalog mainly features my Marilyn Monroe series. Each of the Marilyn’s were digitized using millions of hand-drawn stitches and careful selection of fabrics to bring them to life. The borders of these pieces were actually created using 2” tiles I fabricated using appropriated images from Warhol works.
