My sewing series is rooted in a push and pull, simultaneously embracing and disengaging with expectations of traditional roles and ideas. My grandmothers spent hours sewing, embroidering, crocheting, knitting and darning, and I parallel that hard work with my own. I create my own “fabric” in the series by using my plant archetypes to create repeating patterns and I use bits and pieces of sewing pattern paper. It’s my version of sewing with my own peculiar rules and standards.
