Pages in a book, stitches in a shape, forms in a sculpture, images in a composite. My work consists of pieces combined to make a greater whole. Combining smaller parts into a larger form creates strength from within. The materials and methods can be considered delicate and feminine: fabric, clothing, paper, thread; stitching, sewing, knotting, folding. Pliable and ubiquitous yet when employed they strengthen, becoming resilient and distinct.
