Site and place heavily influence my work. During two projects, This Much I Know to Be True and The Whole 9 Yards, I explored the natural landscape of the desert. I used locally sourced fibers I spun by hand and dyed with plants that I harvested from the desert. In The Whole 9 Yards, I also interpreted the desert landscape of the metro Phoenix area as it continues to be overcome by development. In Tracing the Periphery, the US Capital lawn was the perfect location to symbolize how we are often divided even though we may share the same space.
