“As an artist and knitwear designer I am interested in how drawings and images transform and shift depending on the medium. Whether it be through texture, color or form I am inspired by visual complexity. I am also obsessed with the processes involved in knitwear design and fabrication; of the math involved in making size inclusive patterns and the time required to slowly create garments one stitch at a time.”
Her sweater design, Autumn Forager, a highly textural and size inclusive pullover knit, was selected as both the cover image and as a pattern included in Laine Magazine's Issue-15. Her Sketchbook Hat, a stranded colorwork design, is featured in Making Magazine's Issue-14. Her Senner vest and scarf were selected as designs for Woolfolk's Pre Fall '22 Collection.
