The heart of my work is voice. I am inspired by craft as a historic tool for silent expression. I imagine the women who came before me willing their thoughts, dreams, and worries into their craft. Through the repetition of a single stitch and a collection of various fabrics, I experiment with texture, weight, and line. I draw and sculpt with my materials, embracing my instincts as a painter. Through the conceptual push and pull, I confront that which lies below the surface: emotions and darkness from the past and within. The resulting objects and images are apparitions of my own experience.
