Image Statement: These unprecedented times of pandemic, political, social, economic and environmental crises are testing my patience. While others have taken to peaceful protest and social action, I choose to make my voice heard and express my feelings, opinions and core values through art. I have created the outsized sweaters to convey home, warmth and comfort. And I have chosen the very deliberate acts of knitting, crocheting and stitching to deliver the unsettled themes of our times and to underscore the timelessness of their sentiments. These slogans heard in the past year have now become a part of the fabric of my life.
