ON DISPLAY FROM JUNE 14 - JULY 10
Artist Statement and Bio: I consider myself an aspiring creative who loves all things non-linear. I love the juxtaposition of odd pairings in art and music, and aim to incite others to be just as experimental. My favorite mediums are currently thread and cloth. I enjoy the cognitive challenge and rhythm of sewing and the tactile experience of gathering my favorite color of threads. I just cannot get enough of all the fabric and ribbon remnants. My grandmother taught me to sew, and her mother taught her, and I am teaching my own children. I consider my skill to be an ancestral gift and use it to channel ancestors and past experiences. I aim to create things that are as genre-less as my taste in music and hope to communicate stories with my art, incite people to build new neural connections with the observation of odd associations, and to provide a gateway to escape a reality that can be too grim in today’s world in the same way that my favorite authors provide an escape for me. My June 2nd Friday Artwalk exhibit will be my first and I can’t wait to share what I’ve been working on. Stay tuned.
