I create installations using disparate materials (glass, tar, rocks, wire, thread) and techniques rooted in traditional fiber work (knitting, crocheting, weaving).
I expand physical properties that are fundamental to fiber work, tension and repetition, to build new material relationships. When balanced in mutual tension, these materials challenge dichotomous systems they often signify.
