“Ritual is described as an established or prescribed procedure for a religious or other rite. In a sense, a ritual is a physical action that affirms ones connection and belonging to a higher being. If one were to devote more time and effort to something, would they be more connected or valued? My artwork embraces tedious techniques and time consuming art making. I utilize a variety of techniques that are aesthetically different but connected in subject matter. In my work I use cross-stitch, hand cut copper and printmaking because they are meticulous and repetitive. The visuals in my artwork are players of the Green Bay Packers. Through my dedication to time consuming processes I am proving my worth as a fan. By spending obsessive hours on attention to detail I elevate my subject matter from a mere image to an iconic level.

Growing up in Wisconsin I was indoctrinated into being a fan of the Green Bay Packers. As I have moved around the country I find that running into a random Packer fan is a welcome connection to another person but also to home. With fellow fans I can talk about how the season is going, last weeks game, or even where they are from. It is human nature to want to be a part of a group. My artwork, in part, is about connections with others over shared interests and experiences.”
