Yarn Tricks is a collaboration with my fellow artist, Abbi Israelsen. The work created between us began in graduate school. We recognized the similarities in style, content and approach that we shared in our work. We also saw that there were things that we could learn from each other as well as many things we wanted to experiment with. The terms of our collaboration payed toward our strengths and gave us a parameter for exercising our creative endeavors. The following work was shown in May of 2009 a the Anton Art Center in Mount Clements, Michigan.
