This show is about listening and creating from my perspective using the classic techniques of embroidery, weaving, woodworking, and ceramic in various forms of sculpture and collage. Each handmade element is intended to spark conversation and bring traditional fiber art into our modern culture. These one-of-a-kind pieces are meant to add whimsy and joy to any room.
