Homeland is one of the pieces based on the map of Cambodia.  I chose this map because it is the last remaining habitat of the elegant and nearly extinct Bengal Florican.  The map adds another layer of meaning to the piece that is built with feathers fabricated from recycled plastic bags and printed with images of endangered birds and endangered languages.  This piece also features a haze of waxed linen and wire threads that give additional dimensionality to the surface of the piece and also evokes the texture of bird nests. Homeland received an Honorable Mention at the International Fiber Arts IX, held at the Sebastopol Art Center, in Sebastopol, CA, 2019
