Shows

I participated in the Spring 2023 Textile and Fashion Design showcase event Pieced Together: Perspectives in Textile and Fashion Design.

Wall Text: This selection of my woven and textile work demonstrates my love of geometric patterning, color relationships, and inspiration from water, sunrise colors, curves and lines, and rowing. I spend countless hours with my hands holding an oar, rowing on Lake Mendota in a quest for rhythmic flow within the set repetitive structure of one stroke after another. This mirrors what I love about weaving, my hands holding a shuttle to build up cloth line by line and create beauty in a sum greater than its parts. This installation is intended to open a window of connection between two aspects of my identity, both of which I use to accomplish a sense of beauty and rhythm, deep appreciation of the process, and a sense of structured flow.
