I see many parallels to human nature in working with fabric. Strength and fragility. The balance that is necessary in life. I seek balance in both the physical and visual texture created from a single expansive piece of white cloth, dyed using ancient techniques, deconstructed, then stitched, pieced, or quilted. Each step informs the next. Kinetic in nature, every piece I make is both sculptural and functional once draped on the body. On the body, this cloth becomes the most intimate art.
