Tapestry commission for a domestic, functional soft surface. This nine-month project imbues the coastal mountain landscape of the Pacific Northwest and aligns with the client's sustainable values.

Sculptural Tapestry is an ongoing series I am developing that builds form beyond the flat weaving plane on a floor loom. This technique uses multiple warp planes that create volume, shadow, and sensory appeal.

SUSTAINABILITY: T-SHIRT

The Design Museum Foundation approached me to present for their series on sustainable design. This segment focused on the apparel industry. This project focuses on the T-shirt and captures the steps from the cradle to beyond.

The North Coast Trailhead and Beach Ambassadors program exists to support volunteers to actively improve coastal experiences and mitigate negative impacts through educating users while recreating. In 2020, I helped lead this program as project manager and volunteer coordinator in its inaugural year.

Flax to Linen is an inquiry to understand all processes to produce linen textiles. I planted a small plot of flax in my coastal front yard and documented each step. The project is ongoing and will be complete in winter 2022.

OCEAN DETRITUS

I reside in an area I consider to be one of the most beautiful areas in the continent of North America. In grade school, I dreamt of gazing at tide pools on the Pacific Northwest coast. Ocean Detritus is inspired by where the ocean meets the land and is an ongoing body of work.

Quilted Compositions started with the urge to piece together handwoven pieces to create a quilt. With every weaving, some remnants are senseless to store or dispose of. Each piece took hours to source, dye, plan, and weave. The challenge in this series was to piece together a visual and tactile delight for hanging and daily use.

BIO

total_harvest.JPG

I am a Senior Textile Designer with a Master’s degree and nine years of experience leading internal teams and cross-functional partners through research, design, and production. A textile expert and natural facilitator focused on human-centered design and sustainability, developing revenue-expanding materials and patterns while creating connective CSR and environmental partner opportunities. Solving complex problems as a certified Scrum Master, using data and customer analysis, fostering diverse ideation, and formulating agile product solutions.

As an artist, I use animal and plant fibers and natural pigments to make textile compositions. I want to radically understand the materials I deem healthy for land, animals, and people. The gratification from this highly considered process incorporates aspects that have given me moments of pause to honor seasons, community, and the human experience in this world. The resulting artwork imbues its origins and tells a story beyond immediate visual cues. My work intends to share the natural beauty that I see, using materials of the place I inhabit, and to educate in the name of conservation. You can find me weaving at Cove Studio and Gallery in Wheeler, Oregon.
