Focused on non-traditional approaches to lacework and textiles — literally, figuratively, and sculpturally. This artwork has become a means of recontextualizing “women’s work” through blending historical craft and the generational passing down of knowledge with contemporary practice.

Lace has also become a metaphor for the human condition, in that countless individual threads are intertwined to create interdependent networks with the nuance of connection shaping endless possibilities of pattern. This method can perhaps be seen in everything from the neuronic mapping of the brain to the largest structure in the observable universe, galactic superclusters.
