My art is inspired by the concept of garden as a metaphor for human mortality. While I enjoy the small plot of earth in my backyard garden, gardening in my studio is a lifesaver for my imagination. I create my gardens by either trapping objects, along with scraps and detritus, in sticky resin of self-leveling gel or I bend steel into an armature, a grid, a plot, in which a fabric garden is created from bits of collected fabrics, laces, plastics, and deconstructed silk flowers. This eclectic array of urban detritus is machine embroidered to create vibrantly colored flowers that are at once beautiful and threatening—a dichotomy that enables me to extend the brief beauty of my backyard garden while grappling with my own transient existence.
