"Hawaiian Dichotomy"
Challenge quilt for Hawaii Quilt Guild 2011 show.
My own design; Second-Place Ribbon.

Narrative: The contrast of the assigned challenge fabrics – black with white smoke tendrils, versus a luscious sunlight dappled forest green – reminded me of the contrast between the reality of Honolulu urbanization versus the once verdant & uniquely biodiverse Hawai‘i. As a conservation biologist, this ever-expanding dichotomy and the associated loss of species, is an ironic heartbreak that comes with “building one’s cabin” and living in Hawai‘i.
