Uniting two traditionally unrelated areas of artistry is one of the main catalysts behind my work. I focus on the exploration and execution of crochet techniques as methods for working with materials and processes associated with jewelry, enameling and metalsmithing. Additionally, I have also utilized crochet imagery in creating paintings and prints. By merging the craft of crochet with these components, I strive to blur the separation of what is considered fine art and craft. At the same time, I am examining the value that contemporary society places on traditional women’s work by using crochet techniques and items to create objects and wearables from precious and non-precious materials.
