I employ found objects, textiles, and homespun techniques to create work about gender roles, motherhood, body image, and sexuality. I transform ordinary materials into sculptural caricatures of my personal experience. I want the viewer to glut on the feast of my joys, embarrassment, depression, anxiety, and exhalations. My work is a visual buffet of ardent whimsy.
