My practice merges loud materials with ornate processes to reveal the connective qualities of nostalgia and excitement sparked by collective childhood experiences. I use imagery relevant to childhood, stimulating the memory of each viewer and highlighting the joy of nostalgia. Creating work that honors our pasts provides respite from deeply painful moments that many have experienced in our youth. My practice is built on wearable art and its ability to enhance self-expression and esteem. These pieces are loud and bright, made of faux furs, sequins, beads, and lots of pink. I enjoy mixing these materials with high polished metals to create reverence for fond memories. The marriage of kitsch and fine metals creates a realm of opulent absurdity, offering an escape from the harsh realities of adulthood, if only for a moment. This work honors our inner children, serving as a love letter to their abandoned interests, encouraging the commencement of a healing journey for us all.
