I work in solidarity with the women weavers who have come before me. My current work focuses on using the loom as voice - inspired by female figures in ancient mythologies who wove cloth to tell their stories of being silenced. I have a practice founded on historical research and a hopeful worldview, this pushes me to creatively consider future textiles based on social and environmental shifts and adaptations. The work coming out of my studio is disparate. My project May West focuses on creating a new material out of the fluff from the milkweed seedpod as a way to instigate the habitat restoration of the monarch butterfly. My one-off clothing line Absorka uses vintage and reclaimed materials, plant dyes, and handpainted details with the intention of being a healthy and zero-waste alternative to the harmful fast-fashion industry.
