Artist Statement

Growing up in a military family, I was raised without a sense of permanence. Relocation continually occurs in my studio practice. Home cannot fit into boxes or suitcases-it is part of your identity. You become the places you have been and embrace the connections you have made. Finding home is about finding something comfortable. Home has become a temporary structure, a space to prevent feelings of displacement. While questioning the idea of home, I also challenge notions of domesticity, mimicking architectural elements in structures and quilts.
