Collection: Woven Grid Series

I have always loved patterns. I began making woven collages in response to my daily routine, where my hands were preoccupied by a keyboard and mouse. I missed the physicality of making, so I started experimenting with found materials. The inspiration for this series directly derives from my time spent in the interior design and apparel industries where I was constantly surrounded by high quality woven fabrics. Using old wallpaper samples, my own past prints, and other found materials, weaving became a form of structured play and I deliberately sought out ways to juxtapose materials in unique combinations. I marry my interest in paper, printmaking, and textiles by cutting apart pre-existing patterns, shapes, and colors and connecting them back together in different ways. I disrupt the existing order and create compositions with new rules and color combinations.
