Description or Artist's Statement

Art allows emotion to be expressed visually, and in this case, physically as well. The tapestries represent specific emotions attached to personal experiences. Although all experiences are unique to each individual, the emotions that are attached to our personal experiences are universal. Each tapestry is labeled with the emotion and experience behind it. Although you cannot necessarily relate to the specific experiences, the emotions expressed in these pieces can evoke feelings and memories that are personal to you. While working on the pieces, new emotions and realizations surfaced. Through art, I am able to constantly learn more about myself and the meaning behind feelings endured each day. It is encouraged to touch the tapestries, as I believe the texture of each piece correlates to the emotion it conveys.
