My textile art centers around macrame knotting, weaving, and other fiber related techniques that are used to create tapestries and sculptures of organic materials, dyes, and paints. The primary techniques I use are rooted extensively in history and provide a meditative outlet during the tactile process of knotting. I present color and color transitions into macrame in a new and dimensional way by incorporating meticulously hand-dyed materials and hand-painted accents from subtle to vibrant gradients inspired by life, the natural world, and nostalgia.
In the creation of my pieces, I have tackled many things consciously and subconsciously. The slow art of macrame and textile art provides an escape from the speediness of our click-bate driven lives and creates space for me to process life and its events. Amongst the hardships of the COVID-19 Pandemic, political unrest, and societal cries for change, the world has felt a collective expanse of anxiety, depression, hopelessness, and helplessness. I have used my work to channel my desire for balance, serenity, growth, and confidence. Each knot, color, and shape acts as a vessel towards understanding myself and my surroundings more deeply, while sparking continued growth into a woman who is not afraid to take up space.
I find a sincere presence of calmness and serenity in color, specifically the blending ground between color transitions. Here, I am reminded of the beauty the world holds and the quiet voice it possesses that shapes our landscapes and our universe. I abstractly tie these colors into geologically and organically inspired shapes because I find few things more captivating and calming than the raw presence of nature’s pursuit for equilibrium.
