“Quilts are my medium of choice because they exemplify women’s work, historically.”
Carolyn incorporates yarn that she spins, exemplary of women’s traditional work and
traditional techniques in a contemporary way to draw attention to the lives of women
and to convey the strength of women over time and space. She says, “On a more
personal level, it gives me a sense of continuity with other women—historically and
globally.” She uses female imagery and symbols to conveying an image that may allow
the viewer to conjure up a memory of someone in particular or to focus their attention
on broader women’s issues.
