My work deals with loss, illness, and decay. Fabrics are stitched, combined with collage and mark making. These works allude to human flesh and wounds, the ephemeral, and the body in nature.

Recent works involve the use of bed sheets, pillowcases and my father’s neckties to reference the body, daily life and the domestic environment. Some construction takes place at the sewing machine; however, most of my work usually involves hand stitching. After losing my father, the act of sewing became therapeutic.
