"I use embroidery to reflect on contemporary feminism and society’s relationship with the internet. Patterns, repetition, and ritual frequently appear in my work, revealing a religious nature and expressing an obsession with an unattainable perfection. Playing with notions of perfection and expectation is something that I have always been interested in and seems increasingly relevant in the social discourse. Making art becomes an exploration of self-love in a world that is constantly showering us with alienating social norms. I aim to question these social norms and why we are so quick to accept them."
