I have always been interested in storytelling as a central element of human nature, relationships and social constructs. Sewing and working with fabric is a lifelong skill and so a natural connection was made. I tell stories through clothing and other wearable goods. I love to work collaboratively with other storytelling artists, digging deep to uncover new ideas, perspectives and concepts. All of my best work has come about in community and though it can be uncomfortable for my introvert tendencies, the work is always worth the discomfort.
Design is a fundamental element that shapes the way we learn about ourselves, our communities and our world. To create stronger design programs and encourage design as an academic pursuit is to invest in the future of our world.
