I was drawn to digital embroidery through color and light and the ability of the thread to reflect and define form. Cascade is  stripe study in space! After experiencing Bridget Riley’s paintings in person, I became fascinated with how stripe placement and color can affect the emotions. In this piece, the striped elements are affixed at various levels, in various ways, and even “leap” to the floor.
