“My grandmother taught me to quilt when I was young and it was something I would occasionally do on the side as a craft, not as a part of my art practice.”

“I hope that I am stirring up thoughts of gun control, gun violence, and gender issues, but I realize that to some people, I am making a cute stuffed replica of their favorite weapon.”

“I’ve been making a lot of gold flags lately that I have been calling “People Will Think You’re Making A Trump Flag,” a title I got from a studio visit critique warning me that I should be careful making gold flags because of their association with Trump. I think that is such a perfect example of our current political landscape.”
