Feeling constrained by my creative method, I intentionally redirect the composition and compose spontaneously. Some of my previous work required a detailed understanding of how the piece would come together. For example, if large and sewn, I needed to know how to build the composition in advance. Often requiring I sketch and design most of the details in advance. Although this working method has value, I started feeling constrained by this process. Therefore, in creating this series, I intentionally swerved. Whenever the piece’s direction became so clear I knew the following steps, I purposely changed direction, forcing myself to reevaluate my composition. This revamping of my working method gave way to these whimsical and colorful pieces of work.

I created most of this collection between 2014 and 2016.
