Places I Have Lived

The Trailer Park
Ages 3 to 5

The Niagara Apartment
Age: 4 and 5 (parents brief separation)

B Street
Ages 6 to 9

I am currently working on a visual "database" of all of the homes I had lived in as a child. The series is focused on the floor plans of the the houses I inhabited up until age eighteen, when I moved to college. Each floor plan is stitched with brightly colored craft felt and white thread. Although the floor plans may not be throughly accurate, they reflect my memory of the layout of each home. I used colorful craft felt to enhance a child-like feeling for each piece.
