The human body is a perfectly fabricated machine made up of nature’s most clever designs. As a biomechanical engineer and sculptor, my practice sits in a foundation of material science and structure. In this way, my work has always been closely linked to research. All things in biology are made up of networks of smaller microstructures; atoms, cells, and limbs are units that interconnect to form meshworks of utility. Connection and configuration dictates the characteristics of the macrostructure. In my installations, I mimic biological motif in an effort to both overwhelm and control processes otherwise left passive. Calling attention to these features can have the added effect of eliciting the uncanny. I use this register in my work to express feelings of bodily “wrongness”, both physical and internal. I also balance that feeling with my own enthusiasm for the body’s complex structure through color and a wide variety of materials.

She uses embroidery, ceramics, acrylic and oil paintings, sometimes independently and sometimes in combination. Her works are a visual collage, mixing shapes, drawings, and threads.
