Dancing with a feather boa while exploring the buttons in my uncles’ lingerie factory as a young child, created a love of textiles. Learning to embroider at the age of five years old helped to fuel this passion. Trained as a painter, I have always incorporated textile techniques and materials into my work. Scouring flea markets, taking walks and picking up random objects that have an unknown history fascinates me; I want these items to live on with a new purpose. The blending of objects, materials, combined with color, pattern and design create a beauty that I find very appealing. As I work with these various elements I find they shift and evolve, similar to how we as individuals grow and change throughout life.
