I am a mixed-media fiber artist residing in Bellingham, WA. I work mainly in embroidery, often incorporating sculpture, painting, video and photography into my practice. The expressive, textural nature of needlework has a unique, communicative quality that I feel is especially conducive to contemporary artmaking. My aim is to help expand the perception of needlework - once considered a domestic, feminine craft - to the realm of contemporary art. Most of my work explores the complexity of identity and the difference between the self we present to the outside world and the one we express behind closed doors. I find inspiration in the absurdity of life.
