cotton and embroidery, 8"x10", 2018, $100
Created through following my intuition with color and stitch, a free write of sorts, but with the permanence of needle and thread. Framed.
My work is for myself and those that have come before me. I am happiest most when I am making things, or experimenting with color or mediums. I like to play when creating, and connect with others with what I create.
Born and raised in Maui, Hawaii, she has spent the last six years in Seattle making short films, curating, and creating work about personal histories. She received her BFA from Cornish College of the Arts (2016) and sat on the curatorial committee at CoCA (2017), and is a gallery docent for METHOD. She has shown at The Vestibule, Project Diana, WSL, and CoCA. Over the summer she had work at Soft.Core in Los Angeles.
