Moody, self absorbed, quixotic–i bitch therefore i am. Sometimes i talk to myself out loud in real life—*and* then on here to answer myself. Mad Textile Scientist, i do a lot of experimenting and making messes, and have a lot of unfinished projects due to enthusiastic outbursts of “what if”.
I am a Canadian artist in Calgary, Alberta, working primarily with textiles. I’m curious, eccentric and just a little opinionated. Surrealist in thought, Fauvist at heart, eclectic, explorative and absurd, I use hand and machine techniques to illustrate idiosyncratic stories and integrate hand dyed and “found” fabrics in my work. I am learning to respectfully collect a history with stitch, incorporating meaningful text and a Slow Cloth philosophy, believing that personal expression is instinctual when you listen to yourself truthfully. I am fascinated by the workings of the human body, and the microscopic world, interpreting them in unconventional ways.
