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.
