Carroll is a retired mathematics professor from the University of Dayton. Early in her career, she lived in London, and still returns there for visits as she is an avid traveler. Carroll also loves to play with words....in fact this one gives you a game to play. One of her favorite places in London is Kew Gardens, which is pronounced "Q". so....take a look at this piece, see if you can find the "Q"s.
Carroll also uses a lot of "Aloha prints." She is an inveterate recycler of fabrics and on a trip several years ago to Hawaii, she brought back scraps from a Hawaiian shirt cutting floor. She has been using these Aloha prints ever since, and still has a lot to go...maybe because she often does smaller pieces, but she has made bigger ones from the fabric as well.
Ok...so here is a detail to help you find some "Q"s.
I like how she has used the raw edges...something which I think is a little new for Carroll. Once again, she has used Aloha prints. I think this one is easier to find the "q"s.
