I use textiles as a base and an embellishment in my art to connect our human histories – focusing on women, queer folk and my own experiences – with our exploration of the universe. I have been combining history and present-day circumstances, along with worldbuilding and developing my own symbols, to make art as a map of my own thinking and internal cosmos. By layering tradition, myths, craft, gender, orientation, science and exploration, I want to find a different way forward. Creating intimate objects meant to be held and worn and used, like clothing and blankets, gives viewers an immediate connection and guides them into the stories stitched throughout my art.
