I Miss the Donut Days

My work is process-oriented. Like a wildfire, I don’t know which direction the flames will burn, only that in the end I will ultimately gain a regenerative quality. Like some tree species that benefit and evolve with fire, so do I, figuratively.

As with my recent shows, there is a continuation of cutting and regrouping in this work. Sewing patterns are a new element woven into my most recent pieces. The concepts that arose while creating these pieces centered around the loss of certain domestic skills: cooking, canning, growing food, gardening, baking and sewing. The patterns and the dated domestic lifestyle they represent became a muse and precipitated a question about what else has been lost as these features of domesticity fade from mainstream modern life.
