A Texas transplant living on the moody East Coast of the United States, I moved to Baltimore over a decade ago for art school and never left. I was sucked in by the small town feel after arriving from the ever-expanding city of Houston. From 2006-2016, I co-directed Current Space, an artist-run gallery and studio space.
My daughter was born in late 2014. Her arrival forced me to step back from everything that I was doing and take a deep breath. Although I had graduated from art school and was running an art space, I realized that I hadn't allowed much time for making my own work. I was on an unintended, silent hiatus from it all. All of a sudden, a new life was developing before my very eyes.
I'm a multi-disciplinary artist who uses various mediums to express a story or feeling. My most recent love for texiles and natural dyeing began with the birth of my daughter. The process of constructing a quilt has developed a harmonious structure within myself that feels necessary.
