Profile

I am a Contemporary Artist working with textiles, wood, drawing, paint, and paper, which I manipulate into sculptures of linen, plaster casts, and wood silhouettes. When constructing my linen sculptures, I tightly wrap waxed linen around a jute core which makes a strong yet flexible line, much like the consistency of wire, which I can bend and form into the structure I desire. I, then, stitch it in place and continue this method of coiling until I reach the desired outcome.

My work is a personal narrative of overcoming abuse, triumphing, and starting renewed with an unimpaired immaculate heart. I have an ongoing conversation about the feminine: the experiences of womanhood and transformation embodied by the female form.
