My dolls aim to tell a story and evoke memories for people, working through a narrative of remembering, gathering, and belonging.
|My dolls are like snapshots of people, crafted and presented to tell someone’s story, to encapsulate their character, and to embody their being. My work aims to be both specific, but incredibly universal, and plays on the common human experience. This includes themes of family, tradition, community, and the cycle of life.
What craft do you work with?
|I achieve this mainly through the use of old garments and fabrics in the construction of my dolls.
What inspires you to work with this craft?
|I believe in the repurposing of old fabrics and materials to create new art as they hold meaning and memory that can awaken an emotional response in people.
