My aesthetic is simply that I have no particular aesthetic. I like to try something new every time I create something and I hate to repeat myself.
I consider myself a community organizer and instigator disguised as a fiber artist. I want everything I do to inspire action, movement, community, and civic engagement. I love teaching others how to create and my goal is to teach 1 million people to embroider before I die. I am the happiest when I am making things with others and I want to learn how to do ALL THE THINGS and MEET ALL THE PEOPLE.
My community is my strength and my art exists to serve them. I love suggestions and ideas and projects that can take on a life of their own and that everyone can contribute to and grow and connect from. So let's come up with some stuff together, eh?!
I hate unfinished pieces. They make me sad. I buy them up at yard, estate and rummage sales and finish them. That makes me happy. It is especially important to me to do that when I find one at the estate sale of someone who has passed. I feel like their soul can't possibly rest with an unfinished piece of art out there. I'm projecting. I know and I don't care.
