About me:

My performance based rituals are attempts to extend and understand the relationships around me. Working collaboratively allows a sense of shared experience. I am fascinated with the different levels in which an audience or artists can collaborate and create together.Textiles offer a myriad of metaphors related to cloth, fabric, thread, and the body. I stitch to extend my understanding of relationships and connections between myself and others. People act as my medium as I physically bind us together, giving thread a symbolic presence of what unites us. I yearn for some sort of human interaction, therefore I fabricate props, produce extensions of the body and enact simple stitched rituals as an attempt to connect with others. Neither object, creator nor audience member can perform the actions alone. Without each  to build and experience these engagements, the performances do not exist.
