I approach my work with vigor and openness, never knowing how a piece will turn out. My process is organic, intuitive and physical, always a work of the hands. Stitches, marks and fragments of cloth and paper are recurring components in my art, and I frequently find myself writing the words to a poem by my father. The words are impossible to read because they are deeply personal to me, not meant for consumption. Yet their presence is a tie to another time, another place.
