Butterfly on the Wall
In order to fly, a butterfly has to break its cocoon. In similar ways, I have broken out of the expectations I once held for myself as an artist to truly flourish in my craft, sewing. As a young adult, breaking out of my “cocoon” of expectations had proven to be difficult, but like a butterfly I feel like I have gone through a mental and emotional metamorphosis through my work. The metamorphosis of a butterfly is how I know best to describe my work, passion, and responsibility to the craft, treating every piece like a flower that should be handled with care and hope of flourishment as it blooms. With fabric as my medium, I’ve always known that clothing can make a difference in my life. Wearable stories that help reflect identities that can speak without words and create such a significant impact on the way we view fashion as whole.
