The collection reflects the artist’s life starting in 2001, when she left Taos, New Mexico, to work as a studio assistant for a fiber concentration course at Penland School of Crafts and ending in the present day. “I was so into fiber, because of its comforting and protective qualities, but at the same time it is a medium associated with struggle and women’s work,” she says. “Then I got into the whole concept of felt, because it’s incredibly strong but it presents in this soft, vulnerable way.” The artist’s mastery of the medium and her emotional language-building express the deeply personal in a way that holds broader relevance to humanity, voicing ideas about growth, human connection and personhood.
