in an effort to transcend divisive forces

I work within the visual and tactile realms to engage

our innate senses and highlight our commonalities of spirit.  

while growing up in west los angeles,  I have seen the rapid transformations of neighborhoods


the careless discarding of materials and resources before their potential has been fully explored

this manifests in our overflow of textile waste, which I am dedicated to reducing through the creation of bags and rugs from second hand fabrics.

donations of cotton fabrics are appreciated and will be used to their greatest extent.  larger swaths of material such as big shirts, denim pants and sheets are ideal for me to work with.
