Artist Statement

In my current practice, I explore the body, landscape, and fragmentation of memory by examining my emotional connection to belonging. I am interested in the relationship between landscape and crafts as platforms that carry personal and emotional meanings. In a world with increasing barriers to my body due to its geographical identity, sexuality, and gender, these voyages to lands both remembered and imagined remind me not only who I am but who I can be, a journey toward home. Inspired by the experience of looking out the window, I make tapestries combing my observation with the echoes of my memories.
