My work examines the coalition and dissociation between contemporary art and craft making by exploring and presenting fiber as painting. By utilizing typical craft processes such as natural dyeing, sewing, and quilting these works are able to exist in both the fiber and painting realms and serve as a conversation between the two mediums. Each work is pieced together in a quilt-like fashion, creating abstract compositions that challenge the assumptions associated with fiber art while further blurring the distinctions between craft and art.
