It was my great grandmother’s quilts that first inspired me to make things. I remember when my grandmother pulled the quilts from her closet and showed a then 7-year -old me. Looking at those quilts made me want to create. I loved all the patterns and uneven stitches she had made. It brought her to life for me in a way that was different from my grandmother’s stories about her. The quilts were pieces of history that she had sewn that held actual fragments of her life. As I grew
My work falls in between painting and sculpture, allowing for an exploration of form, color, and movement while also exploring my interests in musicality, pattern, and metaphor. It allows me to create meaning through connecting an interior world to an outer world, speaking to consumerism and identity, treading a line between art and craft, examining what is valued and undervalued.
