An excerpt from the artist's statement: "Using utilitarian methods and materials reminiscent of childhood, I create installations entirely out of felt and thread. My work is site-specific, a response to the space. The body of work in this catalog was made and installed in a Victorian home in Albuquerque, New Mexico that serves as a gallery. I wanted to create a domestic space to give voice to the structure's original purpose, that of a home"
