Feminist Artist Statement
I work on multiple pieces that often suggest other installations and whether I photo silk-screen my photographs or collage sewing patterns, I reference issues regarding culture, nature and nurture. It's an ongoing dialogue with myself and the variables that cross my path, whether they be in the form of found objects or traces of felt experience that excites and fuels my explorative endeavors.
