I use fashion to heal and deconstruct my colonial trauma. I frame the rocky mountains of the southwest as a maternal figure. I dye strips of material and I crocheted and pieced them together. I allow the material to fold to represent the rocky mountains and how the tectonic plates converge. I use the fabric to create dramatic silhouettes on the body.
