About the work....

Textiles play an incredible role in developing today's complex economic systems of lending, labor, global trade, and commodification. Textiles also represent who we are as a culture. The mundane domestic object such as a dish towel conveys specifically gendered social roles while lavish silks and velvets convey another. Socialization within textile-making communities such as quilting bees, knitting and mending circles, and other traditions have and continue to play a role in building and strengthening communities. These groups often provide a shared space of exchange, social engagement, and consideration of the crafted object. I use pattern as a metaphor in my work while exploring systems of production, consumption, and socialization. I often incorporate techniques such as weaving, spinning, dyeing, knitting, stitching, quilting, etc. into my object-based work as well as my social practice as a method of connection and co-creation.
