Threading Through the Gravel Bars, East Fork of the Toklat River
During my ten day stay in the park as Artist-In-Residence, the one element that took me by surprise was the sheer vastness of the open spaces. Walking along the gravel bars of the East Fork of the Toklat in particular, I was overwhelmed by the sight of miles and miles of multi-colored stones and water as far as the eye could see. With this quilt, I hope to share my experience of Denali as a place with an unlimited sense of space and time.
