Artist

Statement

My work invites you to a non linear journey of pixelation, obsessive compulsive disorder andcolor. The goal is to know and understand my identity as perceived from within. I drawinspiration from the silent, patient and under appreciatedcommon objects of our daily life.These objects represent my sense of self and my search for a place of belonging. Mygrandmother’s sewing box conjures the most magical buttons filled with unconditional love. Irepeatedly thread thousands of these buttons using clear monofilament,to “web” three-dimensional objects into life.
