“My work and aesthetic are derived from my daily landscape. Architectural details, discovered color stories and everyday objects are broken down, interwoven and translated into wearable pieces. A repetitious habit of sketching structures and lines has become a graphic body of work with the qualities of a drawing.” – Emily Rogstad
