My embroidered collage paintings are the culmination of lifelong obsessions with anatomy, mythology, natural history, and sewing. Using mixed media allows me to tell stories with depth and texture. I think of my work as teratology—the study of monsters—since I create chimeras of humans, animals, and plants and study them in the worlds I create for them.
