I generally don't blog my own work but I am so excited about being on the BBC and this piece meant so much to me that I just had to. The piece is about the Quilts of Gee's Bend. Essentially, an art colector and preserver discovered the quilts when traveling the south. He had seen an image in a magazine and was so struck by its beauty that he tracked down these women. Gee's Bend is one of the poorest counties in America and yet the work and the spirit that emerges from there is so brilliant, full of life, of love, of gratitude. When I interviewed these women, they cried, they laughed, they bursted out in song, they inspired me and humbled me. Here are their quilts and a link to the piece.
