I use diverse techniques: free motion machine stitching, screen printing, hand stitching, crochet, yoomchi (felting mulberry paper) and basketry construction techniques. When approaching a specific work, one of the first challenges is to determine the techniques best suited to the topic. 

Remains 2 dealt with loss and memory and was done with free motion machine stitching on soluble base material to emphasize the fragility of remembrance. On the other hand, I like experimenting and manipulating the materials, and then studying the outcome. This was the approach taken in Vessel of Secrets and African Princess, both outcomes of a conversation with the material.

Edge has exhibited my work since 2013.
