Artist Statement

I create creature-like sculptures, layered tapestries, and large installations out of reused materials. The hybrid forms are about oneness, repairing the Earth, and the human condition. 

Like insects stuck in a spider web, I embed litter, broken toys, and other unwanted objects into the surfaces of my mixed media textiles, drawings, paintings, and sculptures. I use stitching, imagery, lines, fungus-like raised patterns, and other repetitive motifs to create transitions between two and three dimensions. Wrapped and layered masses disperse into narratives that are reminiscent of childhood—innocent, deep and reflective at the same time. The hybrid forms are metaphors for the way we connect to ourselves, to each other, and to the planet.
