The busier you are the more you can accomplish.

B. J. Adams

Gossip machine embroidery

B. J. Adams artwork began with representation, developed into abstraction, and now goes back and forth between the two, sometimes combining elements of both, giving the viewer a surprise, an out of context scale, image and viewpoint. The sewing machine has become brush and pencil; hundreds of colors of thread have become paint for realistic and abstract images set on various backgrounds. The unusual or commonplace materials and techniques used, the focus required by the slow process of this art, and the infinite available subjects, keep her work ever-changing, challenging, and always interesting.
