Threads is a series of work that found its catalyst in my childhood bedroom. The starting point, the trigger, was a simple piece of pink gingham. After deconstructing the fabric, I used the dissected strands to weave a web of memory and history. The threads run like storylines through the resulting works. Selected works below.
