I'm a mixed-media fiber artist and occasional graphic designer residing in Washington State. I work mainly in embroidery, often incorporating drawing, print-making, image transfers and photography into my pieces. The expressive, textural nature of needle-work has a unique, communicative quality that I feel is especially conducive to contemporary art-making. My aim is to help expand the perception of needlework - once considered a domestic 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.
