Most recently my work has consisted of crafting dresses from pelts I tan myself from hides gathered from hunters, accidents and happenstance. Each dress relates to a particular phase of my life and place that I have lived.Through the process of creating a dress I work as a photographer and videographer, instigating and documenting events that allow my audience the same opportunity for visceral experience that the making of the dresses offers me. These events have taken the form of dinners and skinning workshops. The impetus behind such events and the creation of the garments is to connect to the world in an undeniably physical way.
