Techniques: machine quilting and embroidery, surface designed by burning and waxing the fabrics and the components, embellishment.

Statement: The "Fried Circuits" series represents depression. The edges have been burned. The fire within has been blanketed in blacks and browns. There are holes in the memory. Patterns and numbers no longer make sense. It stirs up dark thoughts of disconnection, confusion, loss, and isolation.
