My current work has transpired from an attraction to exquisite materials and sophisticated processes. I am drawn to nontraditional materials to function within textiles. I enjoy challenging an object’s expected function to provoke a greater investigation, revealing a deeper connotation within the work.


I use nontraditional materials with intent to expose the hidden beauty within. Utilizing a variety of materials such as window screen, paper, and nails allows me to enhance and connect the context within the piece. Stylistically, the work exudes a prevailing delicate and feminine driven character even with the use of these unusual surfaces.

Currently I have been exploring couture fashion in a sculptural approach that deals significantly with conceptual purpose. Each design addresses complex states of mind in which a woman can feel or be confronted with at certain moments or stages in life. I have been using “the dress” as a symbolic and relatable symbol that could be utilized to be interpreted beyond its expected function.
