In recent works, I have been using the American flag and all its preexisting meanings as a vehicle for exploration of the feminine. I select materials and machine sew them onto vinyl. Yes, the fabric store, by the yard, cover your 1950's couch to protect it from the guests, vinyl. I then hand sew the stripes. The final work is covered in 3 layers of quality resin for a high gloss finish. I use unexpected materials to create these pieces such as vintage slides, matchbook covers, old photos, tickets, playing cards, etc. There are cleared checks in some of the pieces that were house payments made by my In-Laws on their American dream. The measuring tape and the repeated use of numbers represents how women are constantly being measured in a unique way from men.
