The Lady Love pieces were something I created to represent some things that were going on with me personally. I’ve struggled with health issues for many, many years. A lot of those issues deal with the women reproductive system. I’ve often felt that we have to very hush, hush when talking about female parts and I honestly think that stigma needs to move on. This pieces was a way to really celebrate how amazing and beautiful the woman’s body is and I want all woman to embrace how wonderful their bodies are.
I hit a realization that I was not taking care of myself the way I wanted. While I love what I do and creating pieces, I just knew my body and mind needed some down time. （譯：我赫然發現，我並沒有好好照顧自己的身體。雖然我享受我所做的事情、享受刺繡，但我知道身體和頭腦都需要休息。）
刺繡時喜歡聽：美國獨立民謠樂隊 Bon Iver、德州藍調搖滾才子Shakey Graves、加州民謠樂隊Valley Queen、新澤西州獨立搖滾樂隊Pinegrove、「草原女聲」The Wild Reeds
最喜歡的一句話：An entire sea of water can’t sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship. The negativity of the world can’t put you down unless you allow it to get inside you. （譯：除非進入船內，整個海洋的水也不能使船沉下來；除非進入心內，世界的負能量也不能把你擊倒。）
