My work is about examining the minutiae of domestic life. Shredding household papers and meticulously sewing them together - honors the daily preoccupations frequently dismissed as trivial and the repetitive tasks traditionally associated with ‘women’s work’.
While navigating microscopic minutiae, I become conscious of the ethics, values and systems of our culture and how I participate. Most recently, my imagery references barnacles which I interpret as aggregate populations. Political leanings, spiritual beliefs, ethnicity and economics reference how populations in different communities are tied together. These identifiers are evidenced in the domestic minutiae of my shreds and become my medium to draw, paint and sculpt.
