My practice ranges from paintings and drawings to installations and relief sculptures. I employ “craft” and the grid to represent gendered labor, another term for “women’s work.” This labor is the backbone of our society yet is overlooked and undervalued.

The layered and patterned two-dimensional work is created by tracing familiar forms and emphasizing the narrow spaces between the shapes, signifying the unrecognized time spent in between or preparing for grander events. My installations of ordinary materials include labor-intensive stitching, pinning, and painting, sometimes massing seemingly frivolous materials for careful and intimate consideration. The grids used in my work act as precise and consistent armatures contrasting the imperfection of my slow, deliberate, rhythmic methods.

My work critiques our biased social infrastructure through pattern, shape, color, and scale without resorting to mere ornamentation. Abstracted references to topographical landscapes, textiles, and maps serve as signifiers of underpinning labor, often performed by neglected and underrated individuals. My hope is for an egalitarian future.
