Everyone has the right to education. Education shall be free, at least in the elementary and fundamental stages. Elementary education shall be compulsory. Technical and professional education shall be made generally available and higher education shall be equally accessible to all on the basis of merit. Education shall be directed to the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. It shall promote understanding, tolerance and friendship among all nations, racial or religious groups, and shall further the activities of the United Nations for the maintenance of peace. Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children.

About my work
The right to education continues to resonate for me as we find ourselves in an era of fractured facts and divisive politicians. This project has been a powerful way to write with thread, to spell out our common values, and to reflect on the path ahead.

I am currently working on two community-based projects in addition to my studio practice. Tiny Pricks is a series of Trump tweets and comments stitched into memory textiles. The project has been opened to the public and will end when he is out of office. Interwoven Stories is a visual narrative project with chapters around the world and over 300 fabric pages completed.
