Statement

I am a structural weaver using diverse, modern materials with old traditional patterns.
Bast fibers from native agave plants, rusty heddles which couldn’t be used, and plastic bags from our newspapers are materials I use to create my work.
Plastic bags from newspapers symbolize a connection to global events as much as to local happenings in our community. These bags are given to me by a vast network of people of whom I know only a few. Even though the people who will see the installation will never meet the people who provided the materials, they are creating a community. One part would not be possible without the other.
I hope people will connect emotionally to my work and believe in our continued humanity which shows that we have more in common than what separates us.
