I am fascinated by the connections we find in our everyday experiences. How do we think of our place in this world? How do we fit in it?

My work is about levels of connectedness. I paint, draw, and knit to represent these moments. We are all connected somehow.

This series started because of my fascination with knitting, love for painting, and intrigue in the community of knitters worldwide. I think about how it links me to my mother, her mother, and all the generations of women who came before them.

The fingers in the pieces are my own, and the knitting is all free formed using the finest of silk, stainless steel, copper, and linen threads. In the needle, yarn and finger movements, my artwork combines knitting and painting to weave sculptural stories of connections to friends, family, and the idea of home.
