Artist Statement
"It's a perfect circle of life. As soil beautifully clothes the earth's mantle, soil also clothes us. Fibers used in clothing originate in the soil (directly or indirectly) and eventually become soil again.

Earthly Coat encourages us to think about how we dress with 'dirt' every day."
