My sculptures are an interface between pattern making, surface and form. I use labor-intensive sewing construction processes to explore the nature of craft via industrious methods. Using design as my foundation, I make both static and functional objects that express a relationship between material and environment.
I have always been interested in how textiles mediate us to our surroundings. Living in Wyoming for the last seven years has influenced the scale and visual vocabulary of my work. I am drawn to the rural sublime and the ways in which covetable geological space and natural beauty affects my sense of self. While some of my sculptures address the landscape directly through form or political topic, I am most interested in making objects that transcend a specific sense of place and evoke a relationship between the natural and synthetic, 2D and 3D, craft and production.
