Studio Location
I sewed an exact architectural, paper replica of the exterior facade of a schoolhouse in rural Nebraska.
I built 5' paper telephone polls so that I could get cellphone reception in my studio.
Each "Tree" is over 5' in diameter, representing the Baobab, Honduran Rosewood, Louisiana Magnolia, Olive and Bodhi trees.
I built a soft golden levee of over 500 pillows to escape the future flooding.
I made a soft, huggable replica of my Brooklyn kitchen for Coosje van Bruggen.
Artist's Statement

When I was ten years old, my family sold our Georgia farm to a developer. Within three years, the woods where I had wandered were cut down and the wild places I loved were transformed into a suburban neighborhood with little connection to its surrounding landscape. In part, my sculptural works are a reaction to these events. I find myself creating works that use natural materials to inject softness into areas of human harshness.
