Influenced by quilting and hex sign traditions, I am exploring patterns, motifs and handcrafted precision. In utilizing discarded and reclaimed materials, time and place become active collaborators.

In my work, natural processes of deterioration and decay, together with transformation and renewal, help convey an intrinsic rural aesthetic.
