Memory of Red, multiple fabrics, threads, raw cotton and safety pins, dimensions variable

 “My parents laid a creative foundation, along with a decade’s worth of experience that has shaped my vision. The work occupies two-dimensional and three-dimensional surfaces simultaneously to reveal an aesthetic concerned with the passage of time and space.



I incorporate and experiment with a diverse range of materials that include raw fabrics, threads and other found materials.
