Artist Statement: Artists are adaptable and we must find a way to create in new settings with new materials. In my practice, I strive to be sustainable by using recycled materials or found objects. Working with the themes of: body, mind, generational history, feminism, and creativity. I have found comfort in knitting materials used in the final piece. Creativity resides in the communication of the two sides of the brain. Knitting was the best choice to embody this concept because I am creating material using both my hands, therefore, activating both motor skills. My great grandmother taught my mother how to knit. My grandmother told me that dimes are a sign that my great grandmother is watching and guiding our family. When I started knitting I found a dime on a park bench. I knew that my ancestors were guiding me in the creative process.
