Statement

Domestic craft has always had a place in a household regardless of where we come from. For this reason, people associate this to being surrounded by a safe space. Women have had to endure the work to better their family. I chose to take this long-lived history of creating for others into my fine art practice by retaking the power of female work and construct a world that talks about my personal interactions with people and the environment that surrounds me. 

I like to focus on reusing utilitarian fabrics that have had past owners and have been given up by them because they no longer see the purpose on keeping them. I study the materials and the history they come with. I then introduce my personal language into them by deconstructing them by shape and fiber. After the process of analysis on them I create new forms by using the dismantled fabrics.

My work is very process based and it carries deep connections to the amount of physical contact I have with my pieces. When I start extruding each fiber from the fabric as a whole, I consider the action very intimate and emotional. It reminds me of conversations people have and how there is a point where they start sharing information about themselves in a space where they feel safe enough to open up.
