Stranger in a Strange Land, 2009

Cut and sewn postcards and photo. 6 x 6-1/2 inches.

Sometimes I just need to keep my hands busy.

In 2009, I began sending friends old postcards and small pieces of art by mail. Inspired by a friend’s reply, a small, hand-sewn piece with painting, stickers and an old magazine clipping, I cut up a few postcards and sewed them up to create a fictional landscape. I made a few more, all undocumented; simply sent to friends. Soon I started making them for no one in particular, just to pass the time.

I enjoy crafting these little pieces. They require no concept. I can make them while I watch serial TV. I can relax with them.
