About Dre

Using repurposed, vintage, and rescued textiles, I create works that challenge the traditional notion of quilting and invite viewers to interpret meaning based on their own emotional response to the works.​

 

In my artistic journey I aim to shift the meaning and perception of what a quilt can be. Within each work, I try to create luscious, soft, and sumptuous moments that provoke emotional responses and allow for individual interpretation. Each work carries personal significance for me, stemming from my experiences with mental illness. Through art, I navigate my inner emotions and find solace, and I aspire to offer viewers a similar comforting and introspective experience. The softness and tactile nature of textiles, inherently associated with comfort, become a metaphorical embrace, inviting the viewer into a gentle and contemplative space.

I aim to create art that could be achieved through other mediums but is intentionally conveyed through the transformative and comforting nature of textiles.
