Artist Statement:
The imagery in my work is inspired by memories of handmade patterns in baskets, plate settings, tapestries, tablecloths, and doilies under the flower vases from my grandmother's home in Colombia. My desire to recreate such moments from my childhood, comes from wanting to take part in a conversation that was started by generations of women artisans.
