"Red Work: The Search for Allen Gray ", 2010

This series is about my search to know my father, Allen Gray, from photographs of him as a child and young man. By converting the photographs to embroidered drawings, I make them more concrete, warm and touchable, metaphorically attempting to bring this person back to life.
