Untitled from Weaving Series
threads and recycled plastic bags
20 x 16 in.

As an artist, I begin my process with materials. Largely inspired by West African markets and the chaos within them, I am drawn to bright colors and abstract lines. Before beginning a piece there is no telling what direction it might take, the threads, be it through knitting, crocheting, felting, weaving, or wrapping, guide me as I add element upon element.
