I am interested in finding potential voices in different materials, especially contemporary materials for which there are no limitations set by precedents or tradition. I work primarily with fabrics and various plastics with sewing as the means of construction. Often the work incorporates fragments of cultural data—e.g., shredded documents, scraps of art reproductions, urban detritus. My work is built incrementally from small units to larger constructions. I aim for ambiguous surfaces, hoping the viewer will sense that more is there than comes across at first glance.
