artist statement

Through an exploration of fiber, nature, and common domestic waste, I deconstruct and reimagine material that may otherwise be overlooked or discarded, and seek to reimagine further beauty that can materialize. My work is process-driven, led by curiosities of habitation and home-ness. Guided by principles of permaculture, I start from a place of observing commonly discarded materials in my home, imagine what they could otherwise be were I not to toss them out, and respond to what amounts. I’m interested in combining traditional domestic practices like spinning, stitching, cooking, and weaving as these materials and practices invite me to slow down and explore what it means to inhabit space, cultivate growth, and discover my own particular position within the wider ecosystem.
