About my work
I made this quilt block while I was a sophomore at Arizona State University, studying environmental design. I’d only done embroidery for a month and quickly fell in love with it.
I am honoured to take part in this project. I’ve lived in Arizona my whole life but I have been lucky enough to travel around a bunch, thanks to having two flight attendants as parents. I think it is awesome that something like this could bring together so many voices from all over the world that all agree on this one universal statement of human rights.
In regards to my take on Article 19, I decided to not take a specific political stance on any particular issue. I left it as simply a statement declaring this right for all.

I am currently a sophomore at Arizona State University studying environmental design. I’ve lived in Arizona my whole life but I have been lucky enough to travel around a bunch, thanks to having two flight attendants as parents. I started embroidering this past month and quickly fell in love with it. Outside of embroidery I enjoy many other forms of art: drawing, painting, throwing pottery, collage/mixed media, etc. I love being able to explore all forms of art and allow my knowledge from separate mediums to influence me in my endeavours. I hope to continue to embroider and further develop my embroidery skills—maybe so much as to begin selling some of my work.
