Statement

I intend to cause the viewer some discomfort but ultimately seek stability. Quilts evoke feelings of comfort, safety, home and family. Though my subject matter and imagery may explore hard edges or uncomfortable feelings, I aim to balance this through the use of soft media. I draw inspiration from personal experiences, and in particular, the city of New Orleans. Examining the “hard” allows me to search for softness and to eventually reach an equilibrium.
