About

While I began embroidering in earnest in early 2014, my love for fiber arts began when I was very young. At the age of 8 my great-aunt, a very talented artist who deals in various mediums, taught me to embroider, and before that I had already become obsessed with textiles and old things. I grew up with a passion for history and objects in possession of a rich history, meaning that a lot of my work draws inspiration from antique folk embroideries including the pieces crafted by the many needle crafting women in my family’s past. I am fascinated as well by the connection between embroidered art and the female experience and continue to explore themes of gender expectation, what it is to be ‘feminine’, love, melancholy and letting go through my stitching.
