< Back to All Squares

"My square shows resilience because whenever I get too stressed, I tend to vent via art. Instead of drawing, I funnel whatever wound up energy I have into creating. Sewing, crocheting; I even fiddle with jewelry sometimes. The act of falling into a pattern and having something in my hands helps me lose track of time, and sometimes that’s all you need."

What materials did you use to make your square?

The square used a lot of mixed media including paint, yarn, scraps of cloth, embroidery, sewing needles, wooden charms, buttons, pieces of multiple plants, and the remains of broken metal and string bracelets and necklaces. Almost everything is secured with hot glue.
