Ladders

Composed with clothing and scraps of vintage fabric, the stuffed ladders and bound forms re-use remnants of the everyday. In these sculptures, the materials of our domestic lives are combined to conjure memories of a certain time and place.

Paintings

Lace, like a woman, is made of exquisitely strong fiber. By incorporating my own dresses and my grandmotherâ??s laces into my work, I feel a connection to the past. The fabrics tease the mind by holding their original image, yet allowing for the creation of something new.
