As I navigate my self in relation to the world around me, I see the body, in its flawed, innately intimate and
personal nature as an apt metaphor for our shortcomings, boundaries, and need for connection. Using the familiarity
and tactility of cloth, I bring attention to our relationships and how identities are constructed and create
conversation about how we co-inhabit. I create intimate declarations that explore both togetherness and attachment as
well as identity and gender. I use traditional and non-traditional textile techniques as visual language to question
the body and its constraints- both physical and emotional.
