— If the material is of the land, then the color is of my heart.

This body of works focuses on recontextualizing “women’s work” by combining artistic and handcraft traditions of drawing and sewing through modern methods.  Wools from the Gardner family farm, Meadowtree Farm, form the foundation, lending labor to works not only from the artist, but of multiple generations. Simple materials balanced with intense detail.  Traditional methods balanced by contemporary possibilities.
Fiber work available through Weinberger Fine Art.
