Many of the textile collages I create are inspired by the Asian art displayed in Tokonoma alcoves. Tokonomas were the sacred center of a traditional Japanese home, and reserved for treasured items like scrolls or calligraphy, beautiful kimonos, ikebana flower arrangements, miniature bonsai trees, and fine ceramics for tea ceremonies. The items displayed were changed for special occasions, according to the season, or to create different settings and atmospheres.
