Graphic Designer and Illustrator in Brooklyn, NY

This quilt was part of the What Would Betsy Ross Do? show at ArtXchange Gallery in Seattle in 2017, a show organized in response to the 2016 election. It measures 52x30”.

I was lucky enough to be able to collaborate with my mother, Margaret Chodos-Irvine, to create this flag. Her creative resilience has inspired me my whole life. I know that she is inspired by the resourceful nature of quilts – lasting examples of craft and the way that people come together to create useful, beautiful things, share knowledge, and form a common bond. She constructed the quilt that I designed.
