Mixed Media Buttonwork. Buttons and mixed media, imitation sinew. Buttons have made cameo appearances in much of my previous work; never have they been the primary material until recently. My parents were upholsterers and my earliest memories are of playing in their shop with piles of vinyl and foam rubber. I have sewn since I was a child and the stitch plays a major role in my work, so it was natural to join the buttons together to form a reconstructed family portrait. What began as a memorial to my father soon expanded to the realm of family portraits, past and present, human and canine. Most recently I completed a three-part commission for a juvenile justice center of button portraits of Rosa Parks, Cesar Chavez and Fred Korematsu.
