Hopeful & Unbroken (58″ x 48″)

Winner of the Minnesota State Fair Foundation Art Award and 3rd Place in Minnesota State Fair Fine Arts 2020

“Hopeful & Unbroken” has been created all by hand and with delicate care. My original technique incorporates silk and other natural fabrics, beadwork, embroidery, the turning and folding of materials and hand stitching.

My inspiration, the intrinsic beauty of nature, the vibrance of various cultures, gratitude, and the wish always to make something beautiful even through difficult times.

I hope this piece expresses our shared dreams of belonging, peacefulness and togetherness, because, no matter our struggles, I believe we can help each other feel “Hopeful & Unbroken”.
