Artist's Statement

Textile Artist obsessed with the political and the personal and how they intersect. I believe that authenticity is contagious, telling our stories can save us, and civic engagement is for everyone.

I'm interested in how clothing impacts both the wearer and the viewer psychologically. I explore this by making garments that reference our history as well as embroidering, stitching, and appliquéing messages on them to start a conversation. 

I also make two-dimensional wall hangings, and have been known to grab a marker and paper when the message I want to share needs to come out NOW.
