About Me

My Work

My artwork aims to integrate a feeling of domestic handiwork into the built environment. Doilies were invented by industrious women to hide and protect worn and frayed furnishings (maybe feelings too). Through the variety of materials that they can be made from, the ways in which they can be displayed, and their references to a variety of subjects. I want to transform space by taking something intimate and domestic and putting it into a public sphere. Handicraft demonstrates a familiarity with domestic materials that ties us with our fragile environment and revives traditions that when integrated with art and architecture reflect our hopes and dreams.

My work has expanded and experimented with the mapping qualities of needlework as a ready-made overlay for organic design in both urban and rural settings.

Past work includes galleries, public spaces, and corporations, including New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, The Guggenheim Museum, Pratt Institute, Socrates Sculpture Park, MoMA PS1, Cooper Hewitt, Addison Gallery of American Art, Central Park Arsenal, and Green Public Art, as well as the New York City Department of Transportation, Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA), and the City of Newport Beach, California.

Since my 2009 commission for State Fair at Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City, Queens,  site-specific projects include the Staten Island Ferry Terminal, Jersey Barriers along the FDR Drive; tree guards and benches for Myrtle Avenue in Brooklyn; hanging doilies in parks; and water jet aluminum sculptures for Water + Whitehall Streets Plaza in lower Manhattan and the winner of a national competition, Chandelier, Little Italy/University Circle, Greater Cleveland Regional Transportation Authority, Cleveland, Ohio.

Excited to be showing sculpture in Pattern, Decoration and Crime, MAMCO, Geneva,Switzerland, 10/2018-2/2019.
