About the Artist
As an artist my interest lies in exploring the form of the human body in space and the ways in which we then apply form and meaning to our bodies. My work incorporates a range of materials from recycled clothing fibers - used garments that are shredded and reduced to basic elements for rag manufacture - to contrasting materials such as silk, rubber and wool to create new wearable art. Iconic clothing structure is transformed as the memory of old surfaces live within the new.
I often use the kimono as a starting point, reinterpreting classic themes and visual language using modern forms and unique materials. Methods used in my process include large format printing, laser cutting, quilting, dying, felting, screen printing, and garment construction techniques.
I regularly open my studio as part of the Fort Point Arts Community's fall Open Studios event in October. Visit fortpointarts.org for more information on Open Studios and pop-up art sales.
