I was drawn to digital embroidery through color and light and the ability of the thread to reflect and define form. STAX was inspired by the idea of a library.  What if the artist Bridget Riley, who makes striped paintings, had a striped library?  Maybe it would look like this, gleaming in the afternoon light.  Digital embroidery and hand-rubbed walnut.
