I have been working with the dress form for the past nine years. Through this format I have utilized materials such as tree sap, resin, sugar, moss, vines. These materials tap a natural resonance between the wearer and the natural world.
Most recently I have begun working with naturally occurring crystallized surfaces in the format of abstract wall relief. My work has been recognized with grants, residencies and exhibitions throughout the US. I plan to incorporate this new medium into the public landscape in the coming years.
