I Am A Placemaker

Creative placemaking evokes shared emotions.

Art experiences can transform peoples’ perception of being different into a recognition of being the same, as humans. This inspires mutual trust and understanding, unifying and strengthening community identity and pride.

Who Am I As an Artist?

I am an artist, craftivist and community builder.

I work lives at the intersection of memory and textile.

I prefer used and found fabrics and recycled materials that have object histories.

I am drawn by the ability of fiber and handwork to build communities and increase awareness of social/political issues.
