I’ve always been interested in art making that expands outside of what people maytraditionally think of when they think about art. I’m drawn to sewing and embroidery because itrelates to the idea of craft vs art while also exploring concepts of femininity and domesticitywithin art history. Though it is something I do part time, I hope to improve over time and be ableto explore more methods and techniques that can help me be more immersed in the medium.
