My work is inspired by the universal relatability of fabric and maximalism. Fabric is a universal form of expression—from the clothes we choose for ourselves to the home goods we surround ourselves with, fabric has been an integral part of everyday life since prehistoric times. Maximalism is defined by the opportunities it presents— opportunities for boldness, decorative excess, and the celebration of individuality. The goal of my work is to explore the relationship between fabric’s universal nature and individuality through unexpected colors, rich textures and juxtaposing patterns.
