About this Exhibitor / Bio: 

I use everyday materials to transform them into complex cloth through various techniques including beading, couching, embroidery, pin tucking, fraying, appliqué, knitting, piecing, etc as the piece requires. I might combine commercially printed cottons with hand-dyed wool or recycled leftovers from other projects with yarn, floss, string, buttons and whatever might be close at hand. I am interested in the shifting of figure and ground, just like in painting. The means of construction is often also the surface design. I am interested in the space where the elemental and the domestic collide, and hope, like any artist, that the finished product will be more than the sum of its parts.
