My work features illustrations on hand-stitched and manipulated fabric. The work presents real and imagined characters through embroidered narratives, often connected to my childhood in Arizona. Threading humor throughout, I stitch drawings and text onto old linens that are often flawed or adorned with preexisting machine-embroidered imagery. I am interested in the permeable boundary that separates actual events in life from the collective mythologies of family stories, literature, and cultural history. My newest work explores contemporary manifestations of the wild and unformed spirit of the West.
