My work explores psychological landscapes, tiny worlds in thread that capture elusive, persistent inner voices. Memories, histories, and mythologies collide amid an undercurrent of social and political turbulence. Entwined, these influences explore power, relationships and self-perception. Opposing dynamics of aspiration and limitation, expectation and loss, belonging and alienation, truth and illusion, are laid bare through symbolism and allegory.
Diminutive scenes are densely compressed into embroidered compositions. While the work acknowledges the luster and lineage inherent in needlework, thread becomes a sketching tool to both honor and undermine its past. Traditional stitches acquiesce to the fragile and expressive, where beauty is paralleled by melancholy.
