In her own words
“As long as I can remember, I've had a passion for the handmade. One of my earliest crafting memories was making a heart shaped pillow for my mom on mother's day. I was pretty young, and didn't have access to a sewing machine so I used staples to stitch my pillow together. Comfy, right!? After this came years of handmade gifts, clothes, and accessories. To no surprise I ended up as a crafts major at the University of the Arts in Philly. In the crafts department, we were always reminded of the importance of form and function. That idea is still very present in my work, even though I do not make functional objects, necessarily. But I like to think that my art has purpose, it has a mission, and the individual aesthetics of a piece are just as important.”
