My Life As Michelle

Gallery 2 - Pin Up Girl Quilts


This is a series of quilts I created based on Varga's pin up girls from the 1950's. I wanted to examine the modern roles in which women see themselves as compared to the traditional roles we still must satisfy: mother, sock mender, food preparer.... do women still fulfill these roles? Or are we merely symbols of sex? I used vintage materials to create these quilts.
