Biography

“The work acts as wearable sculptures that resemble objects of comfort most prevalent within my childhood and teenage years. Using psychological and physical weight, as well as color psychology and textiles, my work intends to evoke an emotional response from the wearer that is dependent on their response to the tactile feel and physical weight of the work on their body; as well as what object or icon the piece may be depicting or referencing.”
