I create figures from cloth. My goal is to capture emotion in each piece. The costuming of my figures is simple, and intended to capture a sense of time and place. I often find inspiration in vintage photographs of women and children of the American South.
I hand dye most of my fabrics, often using botanicals. I also like to incorporate vintage textiles, favoring those that have yellowed with age. Old lace, handkerchiefs, and even curtains may find their way into my pieces. I use mohair locks from my goats for hair.
