Artist Statement
Through the pursuit of utopian living, my parents constructed a shell from which we experienced our lives.  They raised me in a post and beam house on Martha’s Vineyard concealed between spaces that seldom spoke.  My father carved botanical patterns and planted an orchard in our backyard, and my mother stitched and collected feathers alongside roads. Traditional forms of entertainment were replaced with quiet observations of nature and time. I frequently dove into magical worlds of fantasy and dream.  Stitching crystals into cloth and binding books with twigs were daily patterns, which fostered a love for material and process. My paintings and sculptures are psychological inquiries into the construction and deconstruction of memories from her childhood. Structures in the work serve as a safe space for tension to settle and rest
