Artist Statement

My work is based in installation and sculpture with a focus in textiles. In working with textiles I choose to examine the multiple structures that fabric maintains on a physical level, such as weaving, mending, and wearing, along with its inherent social status and ideas of labor and production. Through my work, I emphasize meaning and material by using objects that have a specific relationship to my identity. These materials are typically passed down or given to me, which in turn become placeholders for memory and a way to document their absence and presence in my life.
