In my work, I continue to look for new definitions to immerse myself within. From consumed topics such as: horizon lines, drawing lines, and nature, each word/phrase allows me to develop a new space for the viewer.
Working interdisciplinary, allows me to challenge the viewer in their space. I can cross from a shared spaced into an intimate space—from installation to book. My work begins with a moment had, a phrase said, or a task taken to create new narratives. I gather and reference the textures and topography that surround myself as I test my research through processes with fibers, printmaking, and installation. The laborious process to create my details intertwines with my research – to take the moment and phrases recorded and combine with histories and factual data.
Thread is a common medium throughout my work. It is a drawing tool to bind each layer or a structural element to build an installation. The delicacy and strength of thread holds meaning as a domestic material that I challenge in process and strength. Whether in the confines of a loom, frame, a book, or an installation space, I seek to construct artificial spaces for the viewer to discover new narratives.
