About the Work

I create large-scale stitched works.

Using a basic running stitch, I strategically create patterns that give the illusion of depth, layers and shifting planes on a flat surface. Hand stitching these complex patterns is time consuming and laborious but also meditative in its repetitive nature. 

I work on a large scale using a medium that is generally reserved for small works, mending or embellishment. Each stitch I make shows how I spent a moment and each piece I create is evidence of how I spent a period of time. These pieces as a collection are a catalogue of my days.
