Chicken Girl with Fox Fur

Stitched cloth sculpture

25" X 8" X 8"



My stitched sculptures combine human and animal bodies, skins and gestures to communicate ideas about various states of human psychology. This work demonstrate my interest in both seeing the figure and re-imagining nature. I explore the primary experiences that both animals and humans have, such as hunger, protection of family, fear, depression, joy, aging, and love. Many of them are inspired by research I have done on historical and scientific botanical illustration.
