This collection should show the progress people make in their lives. Life is difficult, but it’s those hardships that can make life beautiful. I want to show the beauty of a person's true self revealed even when it is distorted. I will show this by printing my mother's painting "Crystallized Decomposition" onto fabric and distorting it through fabrication techniques such as topstitching boning, quilting it, or re-creating the painting through knitting. This collection should portray the idea that the beauty of people's real personalities will show through no matter what happens to them in their lives.
