I practice fiber art as work of peace and resistance.
My love of fiber and fabric and stories are where all of my projects begin and end. I use yarn and wedding dresses and fabric and buttons and zippers and old shirts and sticks and feathers and things that look like trash to create cohesive, storied pieces of art.
My home base is the Riparian Zone Studio at the Albany Barn. In nature, the riparian zone is the fertile, messy and necessary place where the water meets the land. My space and time at the Albany Barn have certainly been fertile and necessary for growing and stretching as an artist in community.
