Living at the edge of the woods, I’ve found inspiration and return frequently to the imagery and thematic use of trees in my work. The experience of living with nature as a daily part of your life changes one’s perspective and how one sees the world.

Working with fiber and textiles specifically is my preferred material because it is readily accessible to every individual and forms a connection so our conversation warms up quickly. I have quite a broad interpretation of the word “quilt” and enjoying looking at any new material (or salvaged item) as a prospective ingredient in my next work.
