Hong Kong Lily (front and detail view of back)

Artist Statement:
In mid-1990, my dear friend Jeanette Peck and her husband, Gary moved to Hong Kong and lived there for three years. During this time, I had the opportunity to visit and tour this fascinating city with a person, who was by that time, a local. One of the few fabric purchases I made in Hong Kong was the pink to purple hand-dyed fabric that is used in this orchid. A wonderful reminder of an incredible week spent exploring with a great friend.

Commercially available and hand-dyed cotton fabric; rayon and polyester threadwork.
