Artist Statement

These drawings often come from observational studies, simplified and/or dissected, which produce individual, abstracted forms. Taking these pieces as the basics of picture-making—color, shape, form—I arrange them to highlight the strength of each element. The final composition showcases the most clear and effective use of the forms. The chain-stitching on this wall hanging is a great translation of this work; the piece remains light and delicate while the forms are still solid and bold. The stitch itself is shaped by hand, the patterns used to fill the forms will be slightly different each time, making each hanging singular—a 1/1 edition.
