Through the use of color and theme I am working to explore the ideas of femininity and domesticity as they fit into art. I seek inspiration from the past and have always had an interest in decoration and ornamentation in art. I enjoy intricate patterns and designs and appreciate their importance in art and life today, as well as throughout history. By utilizing bright colors and a variety of mediums I am working to evolve my interest in patterns and floral decoration. I combine traditional crafts with updated materials and processes to create modern, playful and cheer invoking artwork that pays homage to historical themes of pattern and decoration. I tend to focus on the ideas of femininity and domesticity and how they may or may not fit into the world of art. By working with domestic materials and ideas, as well as embracing craft I look to draw attention to the role of women and craft in art today and throughout history.
