Artist’s Statement

Each and every single piece contains a fragment of myself, every piece I create is created in an effort to unearth myself. My work is a constant search for the best way to interpret the ideas that I have. I  do not limit myself to one style, yarn or fashion trend.  Each piece I create is a fusion of my past, where I come from and the future, where I am going to in pursuit of new creative ideas.
