Artist Statement

Through my experience in the textile arts program, I feel exposed to the breadth and depth of all that fibres have to offer. My focus has become more than practical .Currently, I find myself most inspired by paying attention to the intersection of material and process rather than deciding what my end product will be.

This feeling of inspiration  carries on into my work whether I am making functional garments or non-functional expressive pieces.
