I love making things. From an early age my mother taught me how to use the industrial sewing machines ​in our basement that were part of her business as a children's clothes designer, Jessie Fashions. I turned to installation because it offered the opportunity to bring together a collection of objects rather than using just one.  I think of it as an extension of bookmaking, which I used as my undergraduate art form; the book is to a single image, what an installation is to a single object.  My sculptural work has used unconventional materials and means of making.  It is usually temporal in some way.  These works offer an example of the way I have used objects in my practice.
