My process involves collecting second hand clothing and fabrics, cutting them up or tearing them into strips, knotting, and sewing them to create irregular and imperfect rope-like shapes. 

With my art I explore themes of memory, transformation, female identity and legacy, adaptation, through color sensations and symbolism, volume and heaviness, suspension and tension and through all the repeated hand gestures that connect me with the intimate female process of the handmade.
