Nest & Tessellate

Nest and Tessellate explores magical symbols, pattern language and seasonal crafts derived from traditional folk arts. My practice seeks to connect with ancestral art forms, reimagine folk charms and build relationships within community around these interests. Gathering precedents from around the Midwest and beyond; I hope to draw parallels between diverse sources, identify shared meanings and with help from collaborators, develop new visual lexicons reflective of current needs.
