Same but Not, detail, Paula Kovarik

I use thread to draw, fabric to add background and color to express emotion. My work expresses my political convictions as well as my inner musings on life and love. As an artist, I strive to allow the unknown in. I believe that the energy we have within can move and motivate our external lives. My quilts are a way of showing the invisible connections we become aware of only upon reflection.

When I started working with cloth my mind opened up to include the tactile. That was a surprise. The textures, colors and depth make my hands twitch, my mind wander and my heart warm.
