I grew up in a family of creative women. As a child in the 1970’s I was influenced by the projects that were being crafted all around me by my grandmothers, my mother and my aunts. The domestic arts including cooking, baking, canning, quilting, sewing clothes and crocheting, all play a large role in my artwork. Later, these creative skills turned into the DIY movement of this century. I am interested in how these tasks that were born out of the necessity of maintaining a home have become a creative outlet for millions of women today. I try to pay respects to my female ancestors and family members while questioning the reasons for these projects in today’s world.

At the same time, I am trying to create a conversation about the ways that these women from my past lived their lives and tried to keep up appearances through their domestic abilities. My paternal grandmother’s house was a mess and she couldn't finish a project to save her life. On the other side, my maternal grandmother ironed her tablecloths and the stitches in her sewing projects were so straight and small that you couldn't even see them. I want to explore these characteristics through my own artwork using specific symbols, objects, images, marks and craftsmanship.
