Artist Statement

I am inspired by the Bauhaus women weavers. They were autodidacts, who used free experimentation, learned by trial and error and were unhampered by previous knowledge.

I am mostly a self-taught artist who weaves with diverse modern, quotidian materials. In this process, I search to push the boundaries of the materials I am using which enables me to tell a story.

Inspiration for my work comes from current events as well as my everyday experience. Creating something which seizes the moment and transforms it through medium and connection is what I strive to do.
