Artist Statement

"My work is primarily dye- and stitch-based work, which is very meditative. I work in what I call 'stations,' where my studio is rotational between every open project, and I sort of swivel and work on all of them at once, so my visual art is weirdly tethered to my writing. It’s also important to me that my visual work is funny—not, like, belly-laughing, but funny the way something dark and dry hangs itself on you. A lot of people in the art world seem very afraid to let 'fine art' be funny, but that is my absolute favorite intersection on earth."
