I am a fiber artist who looks for continual challenges with overlooked materials, waste, and elevating the ordinary.
The isolation of the pandemic refocused my work to embrace the copious plastic and cardboard being delivered to my house. I started wrapping plastic bags with embroidery floss and then applying it to various forms. I completely transform the bags to a new material. The process is very meditative and soothing, which also helped calm some of the noise in my head during uncertain times.
Techniques Used: I wrap plastic bags with embroidery floss. I then use this ""color cord"" as a material I attach to various surfaces.
Materials: Plastic bags, embroidery floss, recycled canvas, pool noodle, basket ball.
Measurements: 17" x 11" x 6"
