In // Habit

A quartet of 6ft x 2ft (yoga mat sized) hooked ‘yarn paintings’ speak to the rewards of both personal ritual and communal practice as an antidote to other numbing habits, addictions and distractions. This crafting ‘makes permanent’, not perfect, creating more ease and receptivity to adaptive growth, and new dimensions of perception and renewal.

'In//habit' embodies a deep and universal rumbling, and an undeniable reckoning toward connection. A tactile transmutation of shame to grace, fear to love, woe to wisdom.

“I love yarn’s ability to tell a story in increments. A narrative formed by tiny acts of pure intention, stitch by stitch or loop by loop, feels much like a line of cursive writing, or the ever-evolving lines on our hands and faces. I prefer using worn and up-cycled materials to create my own yarns because they carry their own soulful energy and weight. I am enchanted by the alchemy and reinvention that is possible through the materials, which also mirror my own mutability.”
