My work is the means to awake viewers and wearers, make them aware of their own bodies and the evanescence of life. It becomes a theater for the indelible physical and emotional memories of everyday. I present rampant, uncontrolled growth and decay in my work. The objects are both sensual and strange, and suggest an experience of the body that is altered by the tactile and visual characteristics of the article.
