«By sourcing previously owned textiles that are hand-made and used, these materials possess meaning. As foundational fabrics in the prints, textiles signify cultural traditions and crafting techniques that are concurrently historical and presently practiced; in this way time and space collapse resulting in collaborations with unknowing participants. I approach my practice as both curator and artist to augment the beauty of these articles, recompose them, and represent them within the context of contemporary printmaking.»
