Since 2001, my work has been made solely from Mohair yarn. By using materials that are inviting and susceptible to violation, the delicate, off-white yarn serves to create states of inconsistency between the materials and the images.

I am examining a framework of self-containment, which comes from a sense of increasing susceptibility to one’s surroundings, both physical and psychological. My work serves as a remembrance of the extreme vulnerability of childhood by exploring how the residue of childhood is retained, how this memory affects our bodies, our experience and awareness of environment, and how it shapes our futures. - This work is focused on a narrative of interdependence, which can be best described as searching for the ‘dimensions of dislocation,’ – being off balance or lost. Caught within the simultaneous context of protecting what is loved and the vulnerability created by that connection, the work is invested in the fragility of connection by exploring the residue of familial memory.
