The repetition of women’s work so often goes unrecognized. These marks, marks of time and effort made by the passing of a needle, draw my attention.

The grid (connectedness) has always been a central theme in my studio practice. I employ it to represent textiles, quilting, and modern art (a grid in a visual sense tends to flatten out space, providing an equal playing field). It also can be seen as a framework on which to build: physically and mentally. Questioning established systems while pushing boundaries is the larger framework on which I create.
