Biography:

I went through a breakup that left me lost, angry, and bitter. I had no control over what happened to me, and I felt powerless. Wanting to reclaim this power, I listened to my desire for control. I use dolls as representations for ex-boyfriends and failed relationships. By methodically and ritualistically creating these objects, I generate a process that is therapeutic in the act itself. I sew tiny garments, and find pleasure in their details. While I trivialize the male into a harmless, doll form, I assert myself. My work is about control, empowerment, and reclaiming my sense of self.
