As a fiber artist, I am interested in overlapping sheer layers of thread, fabric, color, and content to uncover the relationship between the layers, mimicking overlapping lives and experiences. I love the contribution a single thread line can make, linking the edge of a figure in one layer with the beginning of an individual journey in another. This Land depicts the migration history of North America, from the Native peoples of this land to those brought by force, need, or choice. For better or worse, North America is made up of dispersed populations and continues to struggle as a result. Through this work, I seek better understanding.
