I create weavings, cut paper pieces, and journals that are inspired by the places that I have traveled and the patterns that I found there. I started journaling at a young age, but it wasn’t until college that I began incorporating it into my work. When I started weaving I noticed a correlation between the way a weaving is formed, the way nature documents time through patterns, and the development of my own story through journaling. I work with many different patterns ranging from tree rings to fingerprints and I am constantly being inspired by the world around me.
I moved to Richmond, Virginia in 2011 and fell in love with the city and the art community. In 2014 I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a BFA in Craft/Material Studies and a concentration in Fibers. I am an instructor at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond where I regularly teach Frame Weaving.
