NEWSLETTER"When I go to an art gallery and stand in front of a painting, I don't want someone telling me what I should be seeing or thinking; I want to feel whatever I feel, see whatever I see, and figure out what I figure out."- James Frey
I wish I could say that what I do has deep and profound meaning, but it does not. I am merely a woman who is doing her best to not be bored. I am equipped with a hot glue gun, a pint of modge podge, a box of wayward crafting materials, and an addiction to Pinterest. The pieces (usually masks) that come out of that combination reflect an answer to the statement: “I bet I could do that.”
My work is primarily about the process, but the results do come in useful. Most pieces are made with the intention of posing with them for photography - usually nude.
When I am not naked and wearing a funky mask, I can be found doing shibari self-suspension or tying rope art on others.
My inspiration comes primarily from the materials that are closest within reach, though I most often use yarn or chain as a medium. I also have a B.A. in History and Classics from Smith College, which I occasionally use to give fun names to the masks.
