work combines traditional women's craft, contemporary DIY culture, and a
love of the unexpected and absurd. The first cozy series (Husband Cozy)
began when I found myself newly married and in graduate school. Like an
ill-fitting handmade sweater, the cozies are about the claustrophobia
of relationships. They represent the ways in which our closest
relationships can often walk the fine line between loving and
smothering. My current Cozy Portrait series expands on the idea of the
Husband Cozy. Here, I create a custom cozy for each person in the
project - often my close friends and family, identified by the portrait
title. Some of the portraits take a week to complete, and some take a
year. From beginning to end, the piece is defined by my relationship,
dialog, and collaboration with the person being cozied. The process and
the resulting portraits are very specific to each person. But by
covering the majority of a person's identifiable features, they also
become abstract and universal. While the final form is a digital
photographic print, for me, the piece begins with the first
conversation, and the first question: "Can I cozy you?"
