My work explores nostalgia, memory, and conjuring a sense of time  travel through object association. I research and examine the yearning  for a time passed by creating sculptural objects and textile ephemera  pieces with collected toys, stuffed animals, magazine pages, domestic  fabrics, colorful felt and fleece, and other trinkets and doo dads.  This variety of materials resonates with my childhood history of  building collections and searching for comfort among my possessions.  With a heavy 80’s and 90’s pop culture aesthetic, I encourage the  connection my work has to the past and I hope to preserve a link to  the nostalgia it creates. Each finished piece is an invitation for  viewers to discover something from their own childhoods and sustain  precious memories.
