“A designer is an emerging synthesis of artist, inventor, mechanic, objective economist, and evolutionary strategist.”
–R. Buckminster Fuller
As a maker with 20 years of experience, three threads of my practice have emerged: my solo work, my research into emerging textile technology, and my social practice work. While distinctly different in intentions and outcomes, each thread informs and supports the others. Whether engaging poetic and aesthetic pleasures, utilitarian applications, or political and critical discourse, the unified focus of my work is textiles and the role they will play in the future of our society.
