The unifying thread in my work is my obsession with detail. My overall images are typically rather simple, but are composed of smaller vignettes, each with its own composition. I enjoy increasing the visual complexity with stitches, beads, found objects, miscellaneous embellishments, and juxtaposing the patterns of the fabrics themselves.
I love repetition with variation because it mimics daily existence. The small rituals of everyday life hold significant personal importance. Individual days accumulate to become a life. In the same manner, obsessive stitching or beading acquires nuances and imperfections, which document the small moments and the hand that made them.
A stitch is visible time.
