Artist Statement

The Archery Target Series brings together my family’s traditions of archery and sewing. Old clothes and sheets are torn, cut, arranged, then hand stitched and drawn on, in order to create functional archery targets. I find satisfaction in this cycle of mending and destruction, in which I create something beautiful and personally significant from old and used materials.
