Don’t Grab

Hand Embroidered Lace

My “Don’t Grab” series started after 2016’s election results. Needing to work through my frustrations, I began to sew really pissed off pussy cats. Pulling inspiration from the Pussy Grabs Back poster and incorporating my love of shadows, lace, and layers, the act of sewing angry pussy has been cathartic. While being whimsical and graceful, the lace work embraces femininity and voices dissatisfaction and frustration with our countries political state.
