Working in paper, fabric, and other fibrous materials, I appropriate traditional practices of printmaking and bookmaking, using them toward my own ends. Papers are covered with a calligraphy of screen print and transfer print processes on altered book pages, often discarded books from the science department at my elementary school.
The results are collections of objects that combine the intimate details of books, the dynamic form of sculpture, and the community engagement of social practice. Each book is a process containing layers of information that the viewer is invited to sort and sift through in the hopes of discovering hidden meaning. Art is a vehicle to reconnect with emotions and with our relationship to nature and culture.
