I create intimate environments through the use of little girl dresses and vintage linens to recreate a personal history per my own distorted memories. Through the meditative process of hand sewing, the push and pull of threads, the layering of secrets, poetry, panties, collars, doilies and buttons. . .It is my intention to express issues of identity, family secrets and the dynamics of women.  I hope for the viewer to be pushed emotionally.  Or not.
