The domestic space is filled with inspirations. In my home environment, possessions are stacked and saved, washed and stitched, patched together and revitalized. This cacophony of colors, shapes and patterns informs and inspires my recent studio work. I reuse found objects such as polystyrene packaging, junk mail envelopes, cancelled checks, old fabrics, lace, yarn and plastic bread tags in my work to create a narrative about order and disorder, the beautiful and the common. I find a surprising beauty in the mundane – the data, the debris, the evidence of daily life.
