Statement

My artworks begin as digital drawings which are then translated into fiber-based pieces using the processes of freehand machine embroidery, quilting, and garment design. Utilizing imagery that references retro cartoons and video games, I’ve created a generic character who acts as a sort of “virtual avatar” that becomes a stand-in for the human body. Often presented as twins or doppelgangers, the character and his duplicates become multiples of the self which are able to act out their conflicting feelings as they protect, fight, or just exist alongside each other.
