Cocoon

Coccoon centers around the magic of transformations. The moth goddesses in my work are conveyed by the tedious yet meditative process of embroidery, collage, and gold leaf on paper. The process allows me to hold space in two places at once: reality and the enchantment of my imagination. Combining these materials together allows me to express the complexity of what we all hold inside.
