About
I am textile artist and designer exploring material properties and interactions. Tactile experience dissolves a barrier and speaks in empathy. I draw parallels between textiles / coding / DNA and am interested in intersectional "webs" of all kinds, digital, physical, and theoretical.

My work is featured in Absorption, a self published visual book.  It explores our relationship to systems and structures through a microscopic lense.

I hold a B.F.A. in Fibers from Savannah College of Art and Design.

Statement
Textiles engage the tactile, sensory body. They speak of the systems and networks that shaped them, from the physical origins of their threads to their coding methods.

In this manner, my textile structures display complexity and fluid interworking’s. Elements expand and contract reminisent of live organisms.

By holding a light to the synergy of tangible properties, I invites viewers to tune into the quiet but powerful nature of entanglements and seek hidden catalysts of transformation.
