My work process is improvisational. I start with an idea, a pair of scissors and a pile of fabrics and go from there. I use a simple mechanical sewing machine, lots of stitches and raw edge appliqué to create a textile collage. Using themes from nature and art history, I often stitch in hidden stories, symbolism or words to add a subtle layer of meaning to the piece. My hope is that people find a connection to my work that brings them joy.
