"c/raft" is a large scale crochet and wood installation based on Gericault's Raft of the Medusa painting. Made from deconstructed t-shirts gleaned from urban thrift stores and branches gleaned from rural NW beaches and woodpiles, the piece references our consumptive natures and its effect on our environment.
Born in the practical midwest, raised in between fields and woodlands, and trained in architecture, I am deeply interested in making meaningful experiences for others in architecture, art and apparel design. Even if the other being only inhabits my designs for the length of an art viewing or the time it takes them to try on a garment or to have a lovely dinner, I want them to feel at "home" while they are there. Nature's structures and patterns, colors and texture deeply inspire my designs as well.
