Torma’s textile structures incorporate numerous techniques such as embroidery, patchwork, appliqué, quilting, and felting. Torma’s embroidered designs are often based upon her children’s drawings and hand writing. "This borrowing of images and compilation permits Torma to infuse her spiritual, personal, and mundane experiences with those of others" (Theresa Morin, 1996).
