My work ranges from small hand held book-like structures to larger scale sculpture. I create forms and apparel relating to women that may contain dichotomies both in material and subject matter.

What interests me most is the domestic world, using materials like wire, clothing, or vintage linens; traditionally female activities such as sewing or knitting; and personal subject matter often relating to the puzzling and contradictory expectations of feminine behavior. Drawing from my experiences and perspectives as a middle-aged woman, I find this territory rich and many-layered.
