Today I've just been playing around with free motion stitching on my sewing machine. It's like drawing with an etch-a-sketch.

I just found out that I won a cash prize for Innovation in the Adroit Textiles/Metals exhibition!! I entered two pieces, "Fragile Dwelling" and my huge sculptural piece: "That Which is Empty, May Be Filled", and I exhibited it along side the time lapse video of me making it.

Material Topics: Intercollegiate Exhibition

I have two pieces in the Material Topics Intercollegiate Exhibition, both of which I made last semester while in Bob Ebendorf's Material Culture class.

The pieces are made of wet formed and dyed leather, and rusted silk organza (all handstitched).

Here are a few of my other wearable pieces using leather and found objects:

Adroit, Opening Friday, Jan 15

This semester starts off with a BANG. I'll have a couple of my pieces in Adroit, which promises to be a great exhibition. What a great way to catch up with everyone after the holidays.

Space, Opening Reception Tonight

One of my little drawings called "Broken Spaces" is in the show:
