I work in patterns, using repetitive processes, to transform ordinary materials into something more. Through obsessively mark making, cutting and tying, dividing and gathering, I am deciding what I find most important and what needs a stronger voice.
With every piece, I reevaluate my idea of repetition. Beginning with the idea of a repeated motion I find great satisfaction in watching what was once a utilitarian everyday object transform into something that can be incorporated into a greater space. I also enjoy the dialogue between what I have intended for myself through the piece, with the viewer’s interpretation.

Control is the backbone for pattern. I feel that I have a better grasp on the concept if I have complete control of my materials and the pattern I am forming.
