About

 

I'm an artist and fiber sculptor living in Atlanta, Georgia who explores the metaphorical relationships between material and skin, between sewn structures and skeletal forms, and between tubular shapes and a body’s openings and closings. Employing traditional techniques of weaving, handknitting, coiling, embroidery and stitching, and a zero-waste approach to using reclaimed textiles, my work often combines comforting materials with discomforting images and ideas.

I received my BFA in Textiles from Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA in 2015, and my BA in Anthropology and Writing at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, New York. I had my first solo show, Open and Shu,t in 2017 at the Goat Farm Arts Center in Atlanta, and my work has been featured in a number of juried exhibitions as well as in invitational group shows in Georgia, New Mexico and New York.
