Thread, fabrics, raw materials


I work by mindfully considering each stitch and thread. I use hand dyed threads and fabrics, vintage and found textiles, and new mediums. By constantly striving to create in different ways with my art, my goal is to make something not only visually pleasing, but show that embroidery can move from just a woman's craft into a modern textile art.
