Nature Recollected


In this time of fast fashion adding to our environmental devastation, I am handsewing tapestries that are inspired by couture and the paradise of nature that dazzles me when I witness it in its splendor.

As a child growing up in San Francisco, I was raised to be obsessed with fashion, my mother guided me through Union Square to fawn over the wonders of Gucci and Hermes rather than to appreciate the majestic natural environments that surround the city.

This collection of tapestries is made predominantly from reclaimed denim, fish net and vintage textiles. They are narrative landscapes that explore the garden of eden we inherited alongside the battle that exists to recognize and honor it.
