Artist Statement: My work ranges from wall-scale paintings to stuffed handheld sculptures. Synthesizing moments I experience and nature that I encounter, I celebrate the abundance of all that makes me human - the hard, scary, and imperfect. I use the language of embroidery, both in thread and in paint, to bind my experiences of this world together, while exploring my family’s collective stitch archive that was passed down to me. I echo their physical movements. I am interested in how a painting can create nostalgia, particularly through color and pattern, while evoking the feelings of a glimmer - a micro moment of joy. Glimmers can remind us of the beauty in human connection, and I aim to cultivate a collective sense of well-being.
