i copy/pasted her statement, because i could not have articulated her aesthetic any better:
My work is a mosaic of fragments, collected experiences, information, and images. This mosaic is both ideological and visual. I like to begin with an idea that I allow to develop unhindered to encompass anything from the serious to the absurd. No thought is isolated and the simplest can build upon itself. Layers of connected thoughts revealed in a succession of images link and multiply in evolving variations. In my recent work, for example, I sometimes begin with just a word, but already this word comes with many meanings and connotations. Then I make a connection, a thin bridge, between each word and its images, and other perhaps abstract and veiled yet related ideas. My artworks are often labyrinths of intricate wordplay. I want the words to be read as fleeting and visual impressions that interact with the other stitched images. The figures in my work in combination with the words form a running commentary.
In the Armor and Facade series, I want to â€œarmorâ€ modern society. These artworks are about how we protect and present ourselves. I begin with simple ordinary ready-made garments that I deconstruct; armor with quilting, imagery, and text; and then rebuild. Garments have their mundane yet necessary purpose to protect us from the elements. But they are obviously more than that in every society. They are our â€œdecorationâ€; they express and reflect who we are as individuals and as a culture.

basically she’s in ny right now, and i’m on risd grounds prepping up for freshman orientation. she’s got this awesome internship with doo ri. if you do not know about this fashion designer Â i highly suggest you click here.
enjoy some more digestive info about her (other than her absolut Awesomeness):
Toni is short for antoinette. She covets the fast-paced life of the city but relishes doing all that nonsense that is solely appropriate for the rural setting; nonsense such as walking on rooftops + raping the park on a boiling cancer-saturated afternoon + camping out in our own bedroom (and YES there is a makeshift tent included). She can’t help writing ‘DO NOT TOUCH…ON PAIN OF DEATH’ on pretty much all her property ; adores eating sunshine toast, mexican wedding ball cookies, + jam; loves asking me to aid + abet in all her unlawful activity (like sunbathing on the roof, mom FLIPPED + mom never flips). Regarding music she listens to pretty much everything but i remember the first ever album she bought was ‘PINK.’ Toni is more than addicted to adding more work to her already heavily-burdened schedule, and deleting her ‘Recent activity’ on facebook cause it isn’t aesthetically pleasing. She also came up with the oh so brilliant idea of coloring our faces in w/ charcoal. Real, burnt, rock-hard charcoal.
+ Toni helped me discover the artist responsible for that amazing song ‘BLACK + GOLD‘, and she NEVER thinks twice about speaking her mind. Never.
