  • Statement: Uncharted territory we are all a part of here in Oregon. We will get through this pandemic that has enveloped over us. The lips showing the Tulip festival. For the little trees represent that half of my face is covered in it. I use hand embroidery to represent the trees and eyelashes to represent flowers that we love here in Oregon. The left is painted with coffee and the right is painted fabric. The colors are sea blue, chartreuse, and jade. That represents the rivers. I dream of this everyday.

  • Statement: I want to invoke that feeling of SCREAMING! I did this piece that I want to let go of all the unknown things that are happening at this time. I feel like I am getting buried in this grim, chaotic world. I feel like I am losing control of my life---but I am not. In this piece that I took from salvaged upholstery fabric, two masked monkeys are lovers in a jungle of coffee. (The monkeys I added the mask this year)
