Love Sonnets from Shakespeare to Baltimore is a project using Shakespeare's sonnets, recycled wedding dresses, quilts and original printmaking to create finely crafted couture art books. 
I am interested in historical textiles and their social, economic, and cultural significances. Through the re-fashioning of wedding dresses from the 1930s to 1970s into new book pages, I re-examine how we experience textiles. 
Through the convergence of literature and fashion, the project is both a multi-sensory response to Shakespeare and a contemporary social commentary.
