Silk, linen, and polyester


60" x 61"


I am an NYC based multimedia artist specializing in textiles and fiber and working across art and design. My work varies from small, stitched wall pieces to large scale installations that incorporate my diverse textile artworks, paintings, drawings, video, and sometimes the artwork of others, as well as design objects and elements.

Many art and design movements are resonant for me: Pattern and Decoration, Op Art, Memphis Design, Arte Povera, Light andSpace, Surrealism and more, and I find inspiration everywhere, but especially in the materials and processes I use, along with nature, architecture, science, metaphysics, and in the very experience of being alive and engaging with others.

I worked for some years in fashion and made a name for myself as a pioneer of innovative knitwear, before segueing into art-making and circling back to now a combination of art and design that allows me to work fluidly, with my art projects dovetailing into design world commissions and vice versa.
