My MFA project at MICA:
Just as memories ornament our day-to-day actions, patterns can transform the regular into the beautiful. My memories aren't necessarily beautiful in their original telling, but as patterns they have a chance to aesthetically redeem themselves. Made into sheets or wallpaper or the like, they transcend their personal banality and become attractive and useful. And, as a background to daily living, my memories sneak into those of others, changing both mind and space.
