I began stitching as a means of mending, and I haven’t put down my needle since.
My work more often than not features words; I like to stitch words in books, stitch books, stitch words on clothes, and antique textiles.
Some of the topics I like to explore in my work include women’s history, romance, mental health, nature, the history of embroidery, autobiography and memoir, fairytale, language, fashion, and whatever captures my interest next.
My highlights when leading workshops and participatory events have included diagnosing a replica of Freud’s couch with a personality disorder with the help of the general public, and a stitch-in celebrating women’s protest.
I’m currently working on a full length stitched graphic novel and have very sore fingers.
