”I am a self-taught fiber artist based in rural Northern New Jersey. My work is heavily inspired by nature and all things fauna & flora related. Lately I have been manifesting my love of insects into 3D embroidery art using embroidery floss, wire, and natural found objects. I strive for my art pieces to evoke a sense of curiosity and wonder.”
