Including hand screen printed fabric and needlepoint. I am interested in working with spaces that already exist in my art; previously I had worked as a site specific sound installation artist. While my materials have changed I still see myself working within theses parameters except my site has become much smaller. Everyday household objects are the space that I utilize in my current work, a linen gust towel or a wool pillow. These pieces all use pictograms as part of the imagery. I have been collecting pictograms off of packaging and from books for years because I love the way they are drawn and I see a kind of beauty in the simplicity of their purpose. Within my work some of the pictograms function as literal instructions for the possible use of the object and others allude to a message while also creating a decorative pattern. It is the efficiency of these images that I strive for in my own communications with people, whether it is in my work or my life.
