found via the outsider art fair (oh, how i'd love to go there once!) : junko yamamoto: "Because her mother was involved in handicraft work at home, Junko grew up observing her mother's sewing, their home full of material. One day, she picked up some pieces of felt in her favorite colors and surprised her family by suddenly starting to make appliques. Her themes include food, kitchen gadgets, hardware etc. She remembers these artifacts of everyday life or from art books or magazines, and cuts them from felt fabric."
