Beach Jeans and Trains
Artist Residency at Richmond Saltwater Park in Shoreline, WA
Artist in Residency grants provided by the City of Shoreline and King County 4 Culture
Shoreline is home to a gorgeous Shoreline that includes the Richmond Saltwater Public Park with beach access, hiking and exercise trails, playground, picnic areas and seasonal off-leash dog areas. I collected 20 pairs of jeans donated during my residency and co-created a community quilt that is still in progress, I will update this page with a finished photo hopefully later this month.
I completed 4 small pieces during this residency in addition to starting two larger quilts, one of which is part of the community quilt public engagement project, using deconstructed recycled denim, laser cut collage elements and hand embroidery to tell stories about the park visitors.
