Statement: "My medium is thread—a genre that crisscrosses the globe with a potent network of political, historical, social, gendered, and metaphorical meanings. Intensely research-based, my studio practice harnesses the nuances of this humble, yet poetically charged medium. Using hand construction techniques and cutting-edge digital weaving technology, my work hugs the edges of traditional practice, simultaneously upholding age-old custom and unraveling long held stereotypes."
