Artist's Statement

I've been keeping a journal in some form or another since I was eight years old and in the past 12 years, have accumulated over 30 filled journals. Because of the obsessive nature of my documentation, each journal has become a representation of myself at that time. Through a collage of collected and saved items, the journals capture these series of selves in an overflowing, and yet organized chaos.

The art I create takes the emotional and personal layers of my journals and imbues that into the drawings, embroidery, weavings, sewing, and clothing I create. It takes the multi-layered, playful, and interactive elements of these journals and mirrors them through a collage of techniques and medium. Here I mostly sell my screenprinted t-shirts, but check out my social media sites below to see more of my work and feel free to email me any time with inquiries or comissions!
