Rosies (Warm Gun)

No Longer Available




fabric, polyester fill


9 x 14 x 2"


My work playfully pushes controversial issues that have become points of division in today’s social and political landscape. Through approachable work, I unpack topics such as the debate over gun control, masculine aggression and gender biases, the virtual rise of hate speech, as well as exploring expressions and swaying feelings of American patriotism. I work with a variety of mixed media and found objects, but predominantly with fabric. Using quilting and sewing techniques passed down to me from my maternal grandmother, I create soft sculptures and quilted wall hangings that subvert recognizable objects into something familiar in shape alone.
