Strength and fragility: balance necessary in nature and life. I seek this balance in both the physical and visual texture created from a single expansive piece of sustainable raw cloth, dyed using ancient techniques, deconstructed, stitched and pieced. Through an organic process, each step informs the next until the textile becomes a sculptural and functional form on the human body. On the body, this cloth becomes the most intimate art as beauty and function converge.
